“I see it as a positive impact,” said McCollum,”Financially, it will help the county and increase our funds.  I haven’t heard a lot of complaints about this.  They’re going along some the routes that have previously had pipelines put through, so it’s not something that is suddenly new.  A lot of the property owners are used to dealing with the pipeline and getting the settlements.”

The $2.8 billion project will run diagonally through Chariton County and will pass through ten other counties, as well.  The exact amount of tax revenue will be unknown prior to completion.
