City leaders request meeting with railroad officials
By JAMIE PATTERSON
One city leader would like to have a sit down with the railroad company.
Ward 4 Alderman Aubry Brent Jr. said he would like a representative from Canadian National to attend a Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting.
Brent said he has several issues he would like to discuss, including railroad crossings and stopping trains on the city’s busiest intersections during peak hours.
“The railroad runs through the city, the heart of it through my ward,” Brent said. “The Grand Avenue crossing...you nearly tear your car up.”
Brent also said he received news of an Amtrak train being delayed nine hours because another train broke down and remained on the track.-------for the rest of the story see The Yazoo Herald printed edition or subscribe to the Digital Edition.----------
