Indiana County is going to see over $600,000 coming in from Marcellus Shale Impact Fees.
According to State Senator Don White, his district, which includes all of Indiana County and portions of Armstrong, Butler and Clearfield counties, will receive over $6.7 million in impact fees. White said that while the revenue from Marcellus Shale Impact Fees will vary from year-to-year, it’s a big boost for the counties and the local municipalities. The money from the impact fees will be used for environmental protection efforts and help local and county governments that are most directly impacted by drilling operations.
Indiana County will see $679,011, with around $52,000 going to White Township, Indiana Borough receiving around $15,000, Homer City getting over $2,000, and Blairsville getting nearly $4,200.
