Recently, Economic Development Director Mickey Fornaro-Dean invited the industrial vice president of the Union Pacific Railroad to Junction City for a tour of prospective sites. Dean informed the Economic Development Commission of the project’s active status Thursday morning at the monthly meeting.

“We spent four to four and a half hours in Geary County and Junction City looking at potential opportunities for Union Pacific service,” she said.

Dean said they toured the area and discussed what were the best steps to take next to be able to look at working together.

“There is a lot of opportunity and we’re very excited,” she said.
