DECISION

 

Docket No. AB 1087 (Sub-No. 1X)

 

GRENADA RAILWAY LLC—ABANDONMENT EXEMPTION—IN MONTGOMERY, CARROLL, HOLMES, YAZOO, AND MADISON COUNTIES, MISS.

 

Docket No. AB 1087 (Sub-No. 2X)

 

GRENADA RAILWAY LLC—ABANDONMENT EXEMPTION—IN YALOBUSHA COUNTY, MISS.

 

Decided:  May 18, 2015

On February 9, 2015, upon request of the parties, the Board placed the above-captioned proceedings in abeyance to allow Grenada Railway LLC (GRYR) and the North Central Mississippi Regional Railroad Authority (NCMRRA) time to finalize negotiations toward an agreement that would allow NCMRRA to purchase the lines at issue from GRYR.  These proceedings continue to be held in abeyance pending notice from GRYR either that the parties have reached agreement for the sale of the lines and GRYR wishes to terminate the abandonment proceedings or that GRYR requests the Board remove the proceedings from abeyance, and the Board grants that request, or the Board removes the proceedings from abeyance on its own motion.

 

In its order placing these proceedings in abeyance, the Board ordered GRYR and NCMRRA to file (jointly if possible) a status report every 60 days from the date of service of that order, until the parties reach a sale agreement or the proceedings are removed from abeyance.  The first status report was due April 10, 2015.  To date the Board has not received a status report from the parties. 

 

The Board hereby orders the parties to file a status report as soon as possible but not later than May 26, 2015.

 

This action will not significantly affect either the quality of the human environment or the conservation of energy resources.

 

            It is ordered:

 

1.  GRYR and NCMRRA shall file (jointly if possible) a status report as soon as possible but not later than May 26, 2015.

 

2.  This decision is effective on its date of service.

 

            By the Board, Rachel D. Campbell, Director, Office of Proceedings.
