Board of Trustees rescinded their decision on closing the Franklin Road railroad crossing

On May 21st, the Board of Trustees rescinded their decision on closing the Franklin Road railroad crossing.  The matter has now been set for a public hearing on October 12, 2021 before the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio who will determine whether or not to permanently close the Franklin railroad crossing.  A temporary closing was requested by the Railroad pending the October hearing date, however the Trustees denied that request. The Trustees will continue to work with our legal counsel and the Railroad to determine whether a new settlement agreement can be reached prior to the October hearing that benefits the residents in the vicinity of the proposed railroad closure.
