Wants city to readdress train issue



As a whole, I think our elected officials and public workers have done a wonderful job maintaining and remolding our city of Augusta. But what happened to the idea of reducing the number of railroad boxcars that run through Augusta? This still is a problem with traffic backing up, especially for emergency vehicles such as ambulances, fire engines and law enforcement.

They shouldn't have to wait for long lines of cargo, or take opposite routes for pressing needs. I hope our elected officials bring this problem back to the conference table.
