Promoting Economic Development with Tax Abatement for a Gas Processing Plant in Somervell County??

16 June 2007 at 8:52:00 AM

Saw this in the Glen Rose Reporter newspaper of June 14, 2007.

Apparently there will be a special session of the Commissioner's Court later this year-this is the relevant part that caught my eye.

Commissioners took the action Monday after examining a request for a property tax abatement for the construction of a natural gas processing plant in Somervell County by Cowtown Gas Processing Partners LP, a firm with direct connetion to Quicksilver Resources.

You may recall that about a month ago there was an explosion at the Cowtown Gas Processing plant that sits right outside of Somervell County just over the Hood County line off 199. Joshua Petrie of Weatherford died in that explosion and left a widow and two small children.  In fact, Pecan Plantation folks (Granbury) held a protest about it and wants it GONE-heck, it sits right over near the Brazo River. There's also ANOTHER gas processing plant just north of us in Hood County in Tolar, off 56.

So, what's the deal- where would this proposed gas processing plant go? Any way to STOP it? Can't Somervell County have economic development that doesn't include a gas processing plant???
