Lansing Set to Appeal

By  | 

The city of Lansing is preparing an appeal of the proposed route for Wolverine's gasoline pipeline.

Lansing is filing an appeal within the next seven days with the state court of appeals. It challenges the Michigan Public Service Commission's approval of a 26 mile gasoline pipeline along Interstate 96.

The city is also asking for a court injunction that would stop Wolverine from proceeding with construction plans while the court decides on the case.

Lansing City Attorney Jim Smiertka says the decision on the court injunction should take about four or five weeks, but the appeal process could last two years.

A Wolverine spokesperson says the city's appeal has no merit and is a waste of time and money.
