FARMINGTON -- Officials from Union Pacific Railroad and the Utah Transit Authority are worried a move to vacate Red Barn Lane as a public right of way could jeopardize their access to a key point to maintain rail systems in the county.
Mike Stanton, project manager for UP, said the location is the company's access point to the rail and cutting off access could have safety implications. He said the closest access point to the south is Centerville and to the north is in Kaysville. He shared those concerns during a public hearing on the issue on Tuesday.
His weren't the only concerns. Property owners on the eastern point of the property still have some issues to iron out with the developer, Rich Haws, and the city council voted to table the action 4-0.
City Manager Dave Millheim said he believes the issues can be settled so the council may act on the motion.
