Railroad Wants Additional $5,000 For Library Property
Peg Broadcasting News Tuesday December 12, 2017

The Cumberland County Budget Committee has approved paying an additional $5,000 for land under the Art Circle Public Library after Norfolk Southern Railroad upped its asking price to $45,000, the Crossville Chronicle reports. Earlier this year, Norfolk Southern notified the county that approximately a quarter acre to a half acre of the library building and the adjacent parking lot are built on railroad property. The railroad tracks where the library now sits were removed some 20 years ago. In July, County Mayor Kenneth Carey, Jr. was told that Northfolk Southern would sell the property for $40,000. Just a few months later the price tag has apparently gone up by $5,000 to $45,000 and Mayor Carey says the railroad company is willing to take the matter to court. According to the Crossville Chronicle, the Budget Committee unanimously approved a motion to pay the extra $5,000 pending a survey before completion of the land purchase. The resolution must still be approved by the County Commission.
