Pipeline Windfall No Boon for Taxpayers

CORPUS CHRISTI - A financial windfall for the county won't mean one for the taxpayers.

KRIS-6 told you last week about a lucrative deal on a pipeline right-of-way that's paying off for the county: about $500,000 so far and counting.

But Nueces County Commissioner Mike Pusley says don't expect a check in the mail, anytime soon.

The money is already spoken for.

"The way that deed is structured it goes directly to the school districts," Pusley says. "And that's the way it was set up and we respect that."

Instead, the money - the deal is expected to bring about $ 1 million in the coming weeks- will be divided among the 12 independent school districts within Nueces County.

The calculation is based on average daily attendance in the 2012-2013 school year.

This is the projected breakdown, rounded to the nearest $100:

*Agua Dulce: $3,100
*Bishop: $10,500
*Calallen: $32,800
*Corpus Christi:$316,800
*Driscoll: $2,300
*London: $5,000
*Port A: $4,300
*Robstown: $23,800
*T-M: $30,900
*Banquete: $7,000
*Flour Bluff: $45,800
*West Oso $16,400
