Email News Alerts

What would it take to silence those loud train whistles in Perham?

The city is about to find out.

At a meeting Monday, city councilors voted to move forward with a study that will provide a rough idea of the cost of creating 'quiet zones' at several railroad crossings in town.


The study will be conducted by SRF Consulting Group out of Fargo, which has helped nearly 30 other cities in Minnesota and North Dakota through this same process.
