City's railroad meeting moved to April 29

The city's informational railroad meeting that had been scheduled for tonight at 5:30 p.m. has been moved to April 29, because of scheduling conflicts among the Covington council members.

Mayor Kim Carter called The News at 11:30 a.m. to inform the paper of the switch. She said the council had a schedule conflict and had decided to move the meeting earlier last week. She thought the newspapers had been informed, but this is the first notice The News received.

The work session's structure will remain unchanged. It will still be an educational session for the council.  The public is invited to learn more about the railroad, but there will be no time set aside for public input, comments, or questions. The meeting will not be a public forum to debate the pros and cons of the railroad purchase.
