On Apr. 22, Hays County and the City of Kyle joined a lawsuit with 20 landowners and city leaders against the natural gas pipeline set to run through Central Texas. The suit aims to stop construction until the Texas Railroad Commission acquires management of the proposed route.
Since last year, dozens of cities, counties, and districts have sued against the development due to violations concerning the Texas Constitution. In addition, city leaders like Kyle Mayor Travis Mitchell, estimate more than 1,000 landowners will be affected by the Permian Highway Pipeline.
The pipeline’s construction will begin this Fall, however, the lawsuit could take months or years to arrange.
