The Village has won the first battle in the STB fight. NIR’s short cut application to be declared a common carrier has been rejected. NIR can still go forward with a full blown application, but that is a much bigger mountain for them to climb.

The decision is available at the STB website.

So, now we know that within one week, we will know the decision of the STB. Too late now to make any gesture of civility to Regus Industry, and if the decision goes against us, we can be sure that there will be no thoughts of being a good neighbor as there was total rejection of their attempts. I suspect that the garbage industry is not really capable of such behavior, but we have lost any possibility of finding out. Too bad that there was not any “out of the box” thinking on this issue.
