Leland Mayor Pro Tem Pat Batleman appointed to Rail Relocation Task Force
Recently there has been discussion about a potential proposal to relocate a CSX rail line out of the City of Wilmington. The relocated rail line could skirt the edge of Brunswick County along the Cape Fear River, near the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge.
Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo recently appointed a task force to look into the issue. I was appointed to the task force several months ago, and Pat Batleman, Leland Mayor Pro Tem and Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) representative, has just been appointed to the group to serve at the WMPO-TAC representative.
Batleman says, “I hope to work diligently to represent the region’s interests moving forward.”
