Waite Park to Consider Study on Quiet Zones
WAITE PARK – The Waite Park City Council is revisiting the idea of creating a quiet zone.
Tonight (Monday) the city council will consider conducting a study on the issue.
The city would have to pay for 20 percent of the cost of the study, which would be about $4,000. The APO would pay for the other 80 percent.
Waite Park has five railroad crossings in the city, several that go through residential neighborhoods.
There has been increased train traffic in Waite Park, mainly because of the new Archer Daniels Midland grain elevator.
