Morristown & Erie Railway - Get your Gasses Out of Here!
Tell Morristown & Erie Railway to get their gasses out of here!
Mount Olive Twp. residents have been notified that recently, on behalf of "Gibson Gas", Morristown & Erie Railway is storing 15 - 18 railroad cars filled with butane fuel and propane in our community, where we live and our children attend school. While railway attorney John Fiorilla was quoted in an NJ.com article claiming "Everyone felt that was the safest place to put them", we'd like to know WHO IS EVERYONE?
The railway's profitable fuel storage cars have to go now and stay out forever. While we're at it, let's create a law preventing this argument from happening again. Chemical and fuel storage has to remain at a safe enough distance where an official third party/government issued spill and fire evacuation radius does NOT include a residential neighborhood or a school zone.
This should be a no-brainer, but unfortunately we'll need to take action to make sure these dangerous and selfish business decisions don't take place again at our expense.
