KSA engineering agreement for rail port project approved

The Mount Vernon Economic Development Corporation Board and Mount Vernon City Council approved an engineering agreement with KSA Engineers, Inc. for the North East Texas Inland Railport project in separate meetings over the past two weeks.

The amount of the basic site evaluation and feasibility report services, including reimbursable expenses from KSA, is $74,390. KSA will sponsor a meeting, tentatively set July 23, with key stakeholders and their design team members to review and identify properties along the rail line that appear to be suitable for Phase 1 of the project as well as future land use for the full project, concept. See the July 12 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald for more details.
