Rail operator seeking funds for rail-line vegetation control

North East Texas Connector (NETC), the service provider for the North East Texas Rural Rail Transportation District’s rail line asked Franklin County Commissioners Court members to contribute funds to assist in vegetation control along the route.

NETC plans to request assistance from the City of Mount Vernon also. See the January 14 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more about this plea for help with vegetation issues along the rail line.
