Columbia residents are starting to see an influx of tax dollars as Loutex Pipeline Construction and their partners come to town. Loutex is working on the Parkway Pipeline. The gasoline and diesel pipeline is owned Kinder-Morgan and Valero Energy companies. As construction gears up, Columbia residents are noticing new faces at local restaurants, hotels, and stores.
The tax revenue booster is doing wonders for the city of Columbia. Mayor Reed Houston says the newcomers have been good neighbors and have even rented the former Orleans Furniture site for staging and equipment storage.
"We have worked hard these last four years to become a business friendly community. I think that speaks well for us that Loutex came. They could have gone other places and set up their shop. We were willing to work with them, and they've had their initial crew come by and stay and rent trailer spaces and motel rooms and eating at our restaurants. Now that they are really gearing up to start laying the pipeline, you're looking at upwards of 150 people here in town," Houston says.
The Parkway Pipeline runs from the petroleum facility in Collins, south to New Orleans. Initial finishing dates for fuel transfers are in September. Marion County will be able bring in oil and gas service taxes once the pipeline is completed.
