Boone County Elected Officials Take A Stand Against Bakken Pipeline
OGDEN, Iowa--It's harvest season in Boone County, something that Ogden resident and Boone County Board of Supervisors Chair Chet Hollingshead's family has been doing for nearly one hundred years now. "So yeah, there's legacy to take into this." It's a sentiment that many Iowa farmers share as they continue their fight against the proposed Bakken crude oil pipeline that would stretch from the northwest to the southeast corner of the state and into Illinois. Hollingshead said, "The message is clear. Our citizens don't want the Bakken pipeline and they feel their property rights are being infringed on."
