Meeting to address residents’ concerns about oil transfer through Albany


ALBANY, N.Y. -- A meeting is set for Monday night to discuss the issue of having heavy crude oil transported through residential neighborhoods in the Albany area.

The issue came to light following plans to build a new heating facility at the Port of Albany.

Global Companies wants to build it to make transporting the thick petroleum easier, but the composition of the oil and its explosive properties are major concerns for the South End residents. 

The meeting is set to address those health and safety concerns, and begins at 5:30 p.m. on South Pearl Street.
