COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WKBN) – The city of Columbiana continues looking for funding to keep a big General Motors dealer in town. The Morning Journal says the city needs to establish quiet zones along the railroad tracks near Columbiana Buick Cadillac Chevrolet or GM will force the car dealership to relocate.
The automaker has received several complaints about excessive train noise at the car lot on, of course, Railroad Street. A quiet zone would prohibit trains from blowing a whistle unless it’s an emergency.
The project was estimated to cost $195,000. City council members are concerned about a project that they say benefits just one business.
