Williamson County opened its new propane fueling station Jan. 5 at J.B. & Hallie Jester Williamson County Annex in Round Rock. Construction of the station was funded by a $208,420 grant from the Railroad Commission of Texas.
The county has 24 propane-fueled vehicles in operation and plans on having about 31 when all conversions are completed. Georgetown, Cedar Park, Florence, Taylor and Granger also have fueling stations.
The county will also be eligible for a 50 cent per gallon federal tax credit upon completion of all fueling stations, making the cost of propane $1.36 per gallon.
