MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - FOX10 News has learned that all of the Mobile City Council members and Mayor Sam Jones have sent letters to the Public Service Commission asking that a meeting scheduled for October to be moved to Mobile.
The meeting has to do with the controversial oil pipeline set to run from northern Mobile county to an oil refinery in Pascagoula, Miss.
The commission has the authority to stop the construction which is why authorities in Mobile want the meeting in Mobile so there will be a strong turnout.
Council President Reggie Copeland said if they don't move the meeting, there will be a Mobile presence at the meeting in Montgomery.
FOX10 News reporter Chasity Byrd is speaking with concerned citizens and Copeland about the latest with the pipeline. See her story on FOX10 News at 5 p.m.
