Myersville’s planning commission will evaluate a proposal by a Virginia-based energy company to build a natural gas compressor station in the town, following a vote by the town’s council Tuesday night. But the council expressed doubt about the long-term prospects of the proposal. About 110 people protested outside of the town council building prior to the meeting, and about 40 came inside for the vote. The proposal by Richmond-based Dominion Transmission would build a 16,000-horsepower compressor station on Milt Summers Road and install a half-mile of suction and discharge pipes, as well as make upgrades to the existing Tuscarora meter station in Frederick County.
