WORCESTER, Mass.-The State Superior Court in Worcester issued a temporary restraining order against the Grafton & Upton Railroad on behalf of the town of Grafton, prohibiting the delivery of the 100-foot propane tank scheduled for delivery this afternoon at 42 Westborough Road.
The town on Wednesday issued a cease and desist order to the railroad to halt the construction of a propane storage facility at the railroad's North Grafton facility. The railroad continued construction at the site after the order was issued, according to a press release issued by Town Administrator Timothy McInerney's office.
"We are in litigation with the town and have no further comment," said Jon Delli Priscoli, the owner of the Grafton & Upton Railroad this morning.
A call to Grafton Police Chief Normand A. Crepeau Jr. for comment has been placed. Crepeau had planned for traffic detours for the tank's arrival, scheduled between noon and 3:30 p.m.
There will be a hearing at 2 p.m. at Worcester Superior Court.
The Grafton Daily Voice will send updates as they come available.
