Future PennEast Pipeline Meetings-UPDATED AS OF 10/30/2014-OPEN HOUSE DATES ARE ANNOUNCED

Posted by Alexandria Township on October 3, 2014

Alexandria Township Residents: Below is the latest email we have received from Penn East. This email details open houses that Penn East will hold instead of Town wide meetings.

Dear Community Leader,

In August, PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, announced plans to construct the PennEast Pipeline Project. This approximately 108-mile, 36-inch diameter, natural gas pipeline will originate near Dallas, Luzerne County, in northeastern Pennsylvania, and terminate at an interconnection with Transco’s pipeline near Pennington, Mercer County, New Jersey.

Today, we are pleased to invite you to our open houses. The open houses not only will provide an atmosphere most conducive to providing you accurate information on the proposed pipeline, they also offer an opportunity for you to talk one-on-one with project experts. The PennEast Project team will be staffing stations dedicated to the topics of greatest interest to landowners, community and other stakeholders, including:

• Safety and operations
• Environment
• Engineering, pipeline construction and restoration
• Land
The open houses are one of several steps in PennEast’s commitment to communicating and working with you and other stakeholders. Local input is important to identifying a pipeline route that will minimize impact to the environment and community while providing a safe and reliable way to deliver low-cost natural gas, stable supplies and overall reduced energy costs to consumers in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

PennEast will host each open house 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on the following dates and locations:

Monday, November 10, 2014 Coughlin High School
80 North Washington Street
Wilkes-Barre, PA 18701
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Hanover Township Community Center
3660 Jacksonville Road
Bethlehem, PA 18017
Thursday, November 13, 2014 South Hunterdon Regional High School
301 Mt Airy–Harbourton Road
Lambertville, NJ 08530
Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Aquashicola Volunteer Fire Company
290 Little Gap Road
Palmerton, PA 18071

Landowners and other stakeholders will receive letters of invitation. Advertisements in local newspapers will begin on October 27. If you would like to obtain additional information regarding the proposed PennEast Pipeline Project, please call our toll-free line at (844) 347-7119; email us at answers@penneastpipeline.com or visit the project web site at penneastpipeline.com.

We look forward to the opportunity to speak with you at one of the open houses.

Many have contacted the municipal offices asking when a meeting will be scheduled for Alexandria Township. The Township has been advised that there will be no more Township meetings held. PennEast provided these meetings as a courtesy and will not continue with them. The Township has been advised of the following:

“We (PennEast) appreciate the many questions people have regarding the pipeline, which is only two months into a three-year process. To best address questions, PennEast will be hosting its first set of open houses the second week of November and does not plan on participating in additional public meetings prior to them. The open houses will contain “stations.” The station format enables landowners, community members and other stakeholders to talk one-on-one with experts in the fields of safety, environment, land, construction and operations. The open houses tentatively are slated for November 10 – November 13. They will be held at various locations along the proposed route. Once we have finalized the venues, PennEast will send a letter of invite to landowners along the current proposed route. PennEast also will place advertisements in areas newspapers and post the schedule on its project web site, http://www.penneastpipeline.com. Following the PennEast open houses, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) will host public “scoping” meetings. The FERC meetings will be an opportunity for people to ask questions, voice concerns or render support. FERC will plan and announce its public scoping meetings.”  

Once the Township has been advised of the Date, Time and Venue for Hunterdon County we will inform our residents so they can attend.

The proposed PennEast Pipeline will bring low-cost Marcellus gas to natural gas customers in southeast Pennsylvania and New Jersey. At a cost of approximately $1 billion, this new 100-mile pipeline is designed with a 30-inch diameter to deliver up to 1 billion cubic feet of gas per day.
The pipeline will originate in Luzerne County in northeast Pennsylvania and terminate at Transco’s Trenton-Woodbury interconnection near Trenton, New Jersey.
PennEast will begin preliminary engineering studies in the coming months, along with a formal application before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). If all local, state and federal approvals are timely approved, construction of the pipeline could begin in 2017.

Township of Alexandria receives a Safety and Loss Control Award for our Commitment to Safety

Posted by Alexandria Township on March 4, 2014

February 11, 2014
For Immediate Release
Township of Alexandria receives a Safety and Loss Control Award for their Commitment to Safety

Basking Ridge, NJ – Statewide Insurance Fund Chairman, Thomas S. Russo, Jr. presented the Township of Alexandria with a plaque recognizing their commitment to safety throughout 2013. The presentation was held at the Statewide Insurance Fund’s annual re-organization meeting at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge.
Fund Chairman Russo noted “The core mission of Statewide is to provide affordable, comprehensive insurance coverage to NJ public entities. This mission is achievable by each member’s participation in Statewide’s safety and risk management programs, which are tailored specifically for the public sector. Insurance claim costs are the single largest expense of providing insurance coverage. A reduction in claims through a commitment to safety results in savings for all Statewide Fund members. This savings provides public entities budget relief which is more important today then ever before. Thank you for your commitment.”
The Fund was formed in 1994 to address the insurance crisis that was facing public entities. Their insurance coverages were becoming restrictive and their insurance premiums were escalating out of control. Today, the Fund has members throughout the State and provides property, liability and workers’ compensation coverage to its members.
