Regarding the special session of our city council last night:
Last night the Blanco City Council voted 4-1 to continue negotiations with Kinder Morgan for easement rights to the 110 acre tract that had been purchased for processing of our city’s waste water.
Members of BlancoSTP were told that the city believes they had to do this, otherwise Kinder Morgan would begin condemnation proceedings to take our city property through eminent domain.
So it looks like Kinder Morgan has the City of Blanco under its thumb.
If the city doesn’t agree to give up an easement for Kinder Morgan to lay their 42” high-pressure pipeline next to our waste water plant, Kinder Morgan will just take the property.
Not only is Kinder Morgan bullying landowners into giving up their land rights, they are willing to take government-owned city infrastructure property through their abuse of eminent domain laws.
Our elected officials at every level need to grow some backbone.
And they need to hear from all of us until they do.
Here is their contact info:
