Kinder Morgan makes large donation to Caldwell County


Special to the LPR

Half of the $1 million donation from Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline LLC to Caldwell County and some of its entities was presented last week.

A check for $500,000 was provided from Kinder Morgan Vice President Allen Fore to Caldwell County Judge Hoppy Haden, who was accompanied by County Commissioner Ed Theriot and Unit Road Administrator Donald LeClerc.

Kinder Morgan’s $500,000 road maintenance and equipment donation is just the first part of the agreement between Kinder Morgan Texas Pipeline LLC and Caldwell County in January.

Half of the donation will be used to procure new dump trucks for the county’s unit road department.

Kinder Morgan will also be donating $300,000 to Caldwell County to be distributed among its three school districts – Lockhart ISD, Luling ISD, and Prairie Lea ISD. Those funds will be prorated according to student population for educational purposes.
Finally, Kinder Morgan will be donating $200,000 to Caldwell County for EMS services. Judge Haden said the county plans to pay its portion on a new ambulance for the area.
