  • Council members respond to mayor’s stance on CSX

    To the editor:

    To maintain the city’s quiet zone, we must install median separators at the intersection of First and Main, and either close the south side of Second Street or install crossing gates by June. 

    Mayor Carter blames the city council for its plans to close Second Street and maintain the quiet zone. The city council has only voted on a resolution regarding safety improvements at the Second Street crossing to meet CSX regulations. A decision to close Second Street can only be done by ordinance, and a second reading of that ordinance is Nov. 2.

    About this meeting he said, “There are programs for rural areas and there are programs for urban ones but all too often, suburban areas sometimes fall through the cracks.”
