Catsimatidis Plans Anger Neighbors

 NORTHVILLE, N.Y. – Residents located near the United Riverhead Terminal Inc.’s field of 20 oil tanks are angry over proposals to expand the oil terminal owned by John Catsimatidis.
“United Riverhead Terminal Inc.’s field of 20 tanks is surrounded by farms and
homes in the community of Northville. United officials have asked the
Riverhead Town Board for permission to convert two tanks to store a total of
155,000 barrels of gasoline, and build two 19,000-gallon tanks to store
ethanol, which is mixed into the fuel. But neighbors who converged at a four-
hour hearing on the proposal last month say the plan would add trucks filled
with flammable fuel to their roads and raise the risk of leaks and spills,”
Newsday reported.
Catsimatidis said in an interview that his proposal would create jobs and lower
gas prices on Long Island. “Other people are leaving Nassau/Suffolk…We’re
creating jobs. Why should we create jobs if we’re going to be attacked?
Riverhead’s short on money…They don’t have enough tax money coming in.”
Newsday wrote that “Riverhead officials have cut staff and sold town property
as they worked to close multimillion-dollar budget gaps over the past several
year” and reported that “Catsimatidis said he would personally appear at any
future hearings on the proposal, though none are scheduled.”
“I will face down anybody who’s an opponent and ask them why…I’ll look them
in the eyes,” Catsimatidis said
