Caldwell County Commissioners accepted a $1.5 million donation from the Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline LLC at Tuesday morning’s semi-monthly meeting.

The donation is in addition to the $1 million donation Kinder Morgan previously made to the county last year. This $1.5 million donation will be divided among the Caldwell County Road and Maintenance departments ($600,000), the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Department ($500,000), and $400,000 to be divided among the three county school districts.

There will be 13 miles of pipeline in Caldwell County, exiting at Mustang Ridge and ending near the Tesla facility. Construction on the pipeline is expected to begin in the second quarter this year.
