Decided:  February 18, 2010

 

            On February 3, 2010, the Board served a decision in this proceeding directing parties U S Rail Corporation (U S Rail) and the Town of Brookhaven, NY (Brookhaven), to appear at the Board’s offices at 395 E Street, S.W., Washington, DC, at 10:00 AM Eastern Standard Time on February 25, 2010, to take part in a meeting.  The purpose of the meeting is to explore the possibility of resolving issues in dispute between US Rail and Brookhaven relating to a petition for exemption filed by U S Rail on August 7, 2008, to construct and operate “a new line of railroad and related facilities” in Brookhaven, NY.

            This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of resources.

Eastern Standard Time on February 25, 2010, as discussed above.
