Ingersoll Train Whistle Meeting Tonight

Residents of Ingersoll are hoping to find solutions to a train whistling problem at a meeting in the Town Centre tonight.

INGERSOLL - Residents of Ingersoll fed up with the noise of train whistles throughout the night will get to have their say at a public meeting tonight.
Several people have complained about the trains which operate 24/7 in the town and have been running frequently in recent months. 

The session will include presentations from Jeff Willsie of Ontario Southland Railway and town engineer Sandra Lawson.

Ingersoll Mayor Ted Comiskey tells Heart FM they understand the trains need to make noise when they come to a crossing, however some people are starting to get fed up as the trains are running more frequently and all through the night. Comiskey says residents are telling him the increase of the whistles has gotten ridiculous, are waking up babies, and making it difficult to sleep.

Some potential options to limit the amount of train whistles through the night will be discussed at the public meeting.
Things get started at 6:30 p.m. in the council chambers at the Town Centre in Ingersoll.
