Public Comments: Carol Gerkin 29590 WCR 20, Keenesburg, CO 80643: Carol addressed the board in regards to the railroad crossing closure at Market Street and Woodward. She expressed her frustration with the railroad not only having this crossing closed but also blocking the only operating crossing. She asked that the town do something about this stating that this was a safety concern isolating each side of town from the other. She stated that she had come to town this past Saturday night and was unable to get back home via the most direct route due to the blocking of the crossings, and had to drive way out of her way and backtrack in order to get home. The town attorney explained that the town had no jurisdiction over the railroad, and has done everything they can to make sure that both crossings are not blocked, but that there was nothing else that could be done. Carol asked for the phone number to BNSF so that she could call when the crossings were blocked. The board directed staff to give this phone number to Carol. She then thanked the board for listening.
