Coal forum comes to Marysville Nov. 17

MARYSVILLE — The coming of coal trains will serve as the subject for "The Coal Hard Truth," a forum set for Nov. 17 in the Totem Middle School cafeteria.

According to event spokesperson Dan Klimke, its purpose is to inform the community of the potential impacts of those coal trains, as well as what the community might be able to do about them.

"The coal companies want to put 10-20 more coal trains through Marysville every day," Klimke said, noting the current state of automobile traffic in Marysville, and how existing train traffic affects it.

The forum runs from 7-8:30 p.m. at 1605 Seventh St. in Marysville. For more information, Klimke recommended logging onto www.transitionportgardner.com/news.
