Re: NS

OK, I just got off the phone with Doug McNeil (NSC) and here's the current situation:

1) He is trying to reach VP David Lawson to get final approval to supply the items on Chief North's (~$178K, including the trailer, tow vehicle, etc.) list and we should get confirmation by later today;

2) They have requested the haul permit application and he also sees no need for continued legal wrangling (not entirely within his hands, but he said "no one told me 'no' when I said I was requesting the permit application";

3) They'll make someone available for the community meeting next week, I'd like to provide them a copy of the Council memo upon release and also get them the date/time/location of the meeting as soon as we know.

Please feel free to email/call with any questions...thanks!

Hi Adam,
When you call them you need to let them know we plan to tell Council we have encouraged Norfolk Southern to meet with the community.   We are planning to distribute our memo to the business and civic groups in the area once we give it to Council. i expect that the Council will get the memo tomorrow a.m.

Tony and Steve are to compile the list of groups.   Looking ahead a community meeting would probably be expected to occur next week.  You ,Mark Penn, Tony and Steve would also be there, but we would be expecting NS to take the lead and explain things.

Just an idea:

How do we feel about my calling Doug McNeil with NS and telling him: a) they're not well-served by pushing on the hauling permit issue, since it will likely arouse a move to adopt a more stringent regulatory scheme than that presently imposed by ordinance; and b) that we've received our first citizen inquiry (to Council) about 'those tank cars,' as a harbinger of things to come?

It may help take things to the next level, which is where we need to be by tomorrow.

Just let me know and I'll call him; I have his cell#.
