Officials seek more information about Rockwell railroad track closing

Staff report
ROCKWELL ó Town officials want more information on a proposed closing of the railroad crossing at Shinn Street.
The N.C. Department of Transportation has given the town three options: close the crossing; pay $1,290 yearly to upgrade the crossing with gates and signals; be dropped from the state system and stay “as is.”
During a hearing earlier this week, three residents spoke in favor of closing the crossing. Two preferred it remain open.
The Board of Aldermen decided to seek more information, asking Mayor Beau Taylor to contact state officials. The board will discuss the crossing issue at its next meeting at 7 p.m. on Nov. 9.
The board also scheduled a hearing at that meeting on a request for a conditional use permit to operate an auction house at 112 E. Main St.
Rachel Corl previously operated an auction house at that location. To reopen it, she needs a conditional use permit.
