KINGMAN, AZ (AP) -
A Kingman city councilman says taking steps to reduce noise from blaring horns of Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight trains passing through the Mohave County community remains a topic of significant interest to city officials.
Councilman Mark Wimpee says creating a so-called "quiet zone" to buffer train noise is on the city's wish list but that the least expensive option would cost taxpayers more than $350,000.
Wimpee says the city would bear all costs for changing crossings, installing concrete dividers and other work unless local businesses chip in.
The Kingman Daily Miner says some businesses have said they are willing to contribute.
