Post and comments at Brown County Matters.
- Indian Hill RR Crossing. Audio begins at 19:00. Hallelujah! Commissioners with a 2 to 1 vote, agreed to petition the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) to re-open the crossing. Commissioners had the power to close the crossing. Only INDOT has the power to consider re-opening. The Railroad can appeal the decision to re-open. Commissioner Sanders was the No vote and wanted more information regarding potential costs.
Representative Matt Pierce has taken the lead in representing the legislature’s interest in supporting the re-opening. Our State rep Erik Koch and House Rep Dave Hall have also expressed their support for re-opening.
