Update: Precinct 1 Commissioner Debbie Gonzales Ingalsbe and Precinct 2 Commissioner Mark Jones will host a public meeting on Wednesday, March 6 at Hays High School Cafeteria, from 6-8 p.m. Agenda will posted here when set.

On January 29, 2019, Hays County Precinct 3 Commissioner Lon Shell held a public meeting to provide information and to hear concerns from residents about the Kinder Morgan Permian Highway Pipeline, a 42-inch natural gas buried line which is planned to run from Coyanosa, Texas to near Houston, across much of the Texas Hill Country including Hays County. Kinder Morgan is said to be acquiring 50-foot easements from landowners along the route as well as additional temporary construction easements to be used during construction of the pipeline. The exact route of the pipeline has not been shared by Kinder Morgan as of January 30, 2019. Link to interactive map of potential route courtesy of Braun & Gresham, PLLC (takes you to Braun & Gresham website). Kinder Morgan has Permian Highway pipeline information on its website as well..
