DeKalb commissioners, MARTA meet over I-20 rail

Three DeKalb County Commissioners recently met with MARTA board members, to emphasize their support for a south DeKalb train line.

The commissioners would like to offer funding recommendations to voters, about how to get the so-called I-20 rail project built.

A penny sales tax up for a vote this summer would raise just $225 million toward the $522 million project and could cover express bus, not rail, service.

MARTA is developing a plan that would include some train service, though no final plan has been presented.
