Communities along the path of TransCanada's Gulf Coast Pipeline Project have experienced many benefits, direct and indirect.
One of the hundreds to benefit is the town of Prague, Okla. Population: 2,000.
Cliff Bryant, has seen the benefits as both a member of the Prague, City Council, and as a real estate developer and entrepreneur.
Cliff explains that his RV Park has experienced an increase in business and as a Council member he also sees the benefits of the Gulf Coast Pipeline in the form of increased sales taxes from money being spent in the community. “Our average monthly sales tax in Prague is four percent, it’s usually about $80,000 per month. The last three months, we’ve hit between $150,000 and $160,000 per month. We can safely say that it (Gulf Coast Pipeline Project) has doubled our sales tax,” says Cliff.
Chadd Bryant, owner/manager of Chaddar’s Restaurant, has seen a definite increase in customers in his local business as a result of construction of the Gulf Coast Pipeline, which is under construction through Texas and Oklahoma. “Volume has increased over the last four to five months,” explains Chadd.
