Rover Pipeline Paid More Than $550,000 To Archbold Schools For Henry County Taxes

Rover Pipeline paid $550,034.07 in property taxes to Archbold Schools based on assets in Henry County alone.

Combined with the $692,256.28 the company paid in Fulton County taxes to the school, the district received $1,242,290.35 in total revenue from the pipeline.

The amounts are for money paid by Rover in taxes for Tax Year 2018, payable in 2019.

The Archbold School District extends over both Fulton and Henry counties.

Kevin Garringer, Henry County auditor, said the valuation of Rover Pipeline property and assets in Henry County is $12,549,260.

When the Archbold School District tax rate of 43.83 mills is assessed against that valuation, the resulting tax figure is more than $550,000.

Garringer said while the Pettisville School District has a small amount of territory in Henry County, it was not impacted by the Rover project. No tax revenue was paid to Pettisville Schools by Rover based on Henry County assessments.

The company constructed an underground 42-inch natural gas pipeline extending from a natural gas pipeline hub in Defiance through Fulton and Henry counties in 2017.

The pipeline route goes through Michigan before terminating in Dawn Township, Ontario.

The Rover project begins in shale gas deposits in eastern Ohio, then crosses the state to connect to other pipelines at Defiance.

In all, Garringer said the tax valuation of Henry County property in the Archbold Area School District is $51,971,000.
