Garden City’s Fight to Keep Rail


Garden City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) The old adage is there is strength in numbers.  During their recent visit to Topeka in discussing issues important to our area,  Garden City Manager Matt Allen had the chance to talk with city officials in Eastern Kansas.  Their goal collectively is to keep rail service running in our state.

Unfortunately, Kansas isn’t the only one will decide the future of rail service. New Mexico and Colorado also have a vested interest.  The question is who will pay for what among these states and the railroad companies?

A decision is expected by the end of the year.
