City officials in Rochelle are moving forward in reducing the sound of train horns on a daily basis in the community.
Last month, the majority of the council heard a presentation dealing with wayside horns at the railroad crossings. Communities have turned to this option which reduces the sound when a train travels through a certain area. The cost is also between 100,000 to 120,000 dollars per railroad crossing.
During yesterday's program "Let The People Know", Rochelle Mayor Chet Olson talked about the train horn issue. The city is looking at wayside horns at the railroad crossing along with cement barriers.
He also said that the project should done at 1 time and not in phases over a period of 2 or 3 years
"Let The People Know" is heard on Wednesday afternoons at 12:30 on Newstalk 1060 and re-broadcast Saturday mornings at 6 on Newstalk 1060 and Sunday mornings at 7 on "SAM", 102.3FM.
