Mayor Guillermo Udarbe asked the Ridgway Borough Council to take legal action against the Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad in an effort to resolve a 14-year dispute over what to do with the Pennsy Station along North Broad Street.
Udarbe reminded council that on Sept. 24, 2010, code enforcement officer Dave Zeigler wrote a letter to B&P Railroad property manager Bill Gentilman citing all of the violations and giving a 30-day notice to correct the violations.
