Some two weeks after the settlement with Nexus, some residents of Green are none too please with their city’s response.

Green mayor Gerard Neugebauer joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to address his residents’ concerns. Ultimately, Neugebauer said the initial goal was to move the pipeline out of town, and because that could not happen, he is disappointed with the outcome. However, he says the city’s mission now is to work with Nexus to make the pipe safe for everyone.

Originally, the pipe was supposed to travel six-and-a-half miles through the city. The pushback on Nexus caused the pipe to be extended to eight miles, but through a more rural area to the south than what was initially planned. The mayor says if any residents see anything suspicious with the pipeline, they should call (330) 896-6930 to report what they have witnessed.

AUDIO: Mayor Neugebauer on Nexus Settlement

For the last three years, the city of Green has been in a battle with Nexus over construction of a pipeline in the town. On Wednesday night, that fight came to an end after a 4-3 decision in city council. Gerard Neugebauer, the mayor of Green, called in to the Ray Horner Morning Show to talk about the settlement with Nexus, which amounted to $7.8 million. Neugebauer said after three years, a decision had to be made, and he was advised by his legal team to settle. The pipeline will be eight miles long in Green city limits, and Nexus will have folks on site monitoring the pipeline 24/7. Nexus says the pipe will be inspected weekly, and will have training for first responders.
