ELIZABETHTOWN, N.Y. -

The Essex County Board of Supervisors in New York unanimously endorsed the Addison-Rutland Natural Gas Pipeline project.

Vermont Gas wants to extend its pipeline south and west, and eventually under Lake Champlain to Ticonderoga in Essex County, N.Y. Ticonderoga is the home of International Paper, the largest employer in the area.

Monday night, the Essex County Board of Supervisors passed a resolution in favor of the project. It also sent a letter to the Addison County Regional Planning Commission asking to participate in its proceedings.
