Road ordinance repealed by Elwood Village Board

Author: Editor

The Elwood Village Board voted to repeal an ordinance passed May 21 instituting road restrictions designed to reduce the number of vehicles crossing the Union Pacific Railroad track at Walter Strawn Drive.

The action taken Wednesday night passed unanimously with no comment from trustees. President William Offerman and Trustee Francis “Bud” Jones were absent.

After the village instituted the changes in May, CenterPoint, APL and the Union Pacific Railroad argued successfully in federal court for a temporary restraining order.
