City of Peoria, IL (City), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire from Union Pacific Railroad Company (UP) and operate a 1.9-mile line of railroad, commonly known as the Pioneer Industrial Lead (Lead), that extends easterly from UP's Peoria Subdivision, at approximately milepost 71.5, to the end of a track, a short distance west of University Avenue, in the City of Peoria, Peoria County, IL.
The transaction was scheduled to be consummated on July 10, 2001 (7 days after the exemption was filed).
If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to reopen the proceeding to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.
An original and 10 copies of all pleadings, referring to STB Finance Docket No. 34066 must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board, Office of the Secretary, Case Control Unit, 1925 K Street, N.W., Washington, DC 20423-0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on Thomas F. McFarland, Esq., 208 South LaSalle Street, Suite 1890, Chicago, IL 60604-1194.
