Clyattville - Concerned citizens spoke directly to representatives from Sabal Trail about issues, like the economic and environmental impacts the pipeline could have on the community.
Representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission were also on hand to answer questions, but tonight's meeting didn't ease everyone's fears.
"The hope is they would pipe their gas using another route. I don't need to be a doormat for somebody to make money shipping gas to Florida, so that they can cash the check on my back", says Tom Lovett, an impacted landowner.
"I understand why the landowners are upset. I mean I really do. I see that they don't have answers right now, but it just takes time", says Susan Waller, VP of Stakeholder Outreach for Sabal Trail Transmissions.
Representatives from Sabal Trail say they hope to have a complete study by May, 2014 with answers to community concerns.
