Redlands city officials firmly declared theur refusal to participate in any agreement for installing the signals as long as the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe railroads persist in their demand that the city share in the annual costs for maintaining the devices. PUC engineers outlined their recommendations that interconnected flashing light signals be installed at railroad crossings on Tennessee street. Church street. University street and Judson street. Engineers for the Southern Pacific raibroad urged the PUC to require the installation of automatic crossing gates at Judson street, describing gates as "extremely desirable to reduce confusion." City officials had anticipated that the issue of maintenance costs could be settled as a result of the PUC hearing, but testimony on that question was prohibited by PUC examiner Kent C. Rogers. Five Hour Session Rogers, who" presided at the five-hour hearing held in the Redlands School Board Room, asserted, "There will be no determination of maintenance costs at this hearing. The PUC has deferred such decisions." The hearing was limited to testimony on the need for upgrading protection at the four railroad crossings, the types of warning devices needed, and to the allocation of initial installation costs. Both the Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe representatives recommended that the City of Redlands pay half the costs, while each of the railroad companies would pay one-fourth. Edward F. Taylor, Redlands city attorney, advised the PUC examiner that the city had already reached agreement with the two railroads on the types of signals to be installed and on sharing installation costs. Conditional Agreement He stressed, however, that the agreement was contingent on the city not being required to share in the annual maintenance costs now or in the future. 'The PUC historically has not required municipalities to share in such costs," Taylor explained. But Taylor was blocked from entering the city's position regarding maintenance costs into the hearing's official record. Public Works director Jolm R. Shone started to read a prepared statement on maintenance costs, but was not allowed to complete the statement. "My understanding of this meeting was to discuss maintenance costs," Shone remarked. During a hearing recess, Rogers explained to newsmen that the PUC would probably make a prompt ruling on whether it should order signals to be installed and on apportioning installation costs. He said the ruling would probably be made within four to five weeks. But city attorney Taylor maintains that the PUC will not be able to make a definite ruling as long as the city refuses to enter into an agreement with the railroads. "The PUC can only make a recommendation, he said. Two Redlands residents appeared at yesterday's hearing to make statements. Dr. James Ifft, 506 Lytle street, emphasized the need for interconnected signals at the Southern Pacific and Santa Fe crossings at University street. He related that he was nearly struck by a train while driving across the Univei-sity street tracks because the wigwag device was not working and he did not hear the warning beUs. Later in the hearing, PUC engineer Frank 0. Haymond, Jr., referred to warning bells as "horse and buggy' protection. Blind Crossing Mrs. John M. Hatfield, 1028 W. Crescent, told the PUC examiner she was appalled that the "blind crossing" at G r o v e street was not included as part of the PUC investigation. She related that her daughter was involved in an automobile-train accident at the Grove street crossing on Feb. 6. Mrs. Hatfield's statement was allowed to be entered into the record only after Rogers explained that signals at the Grove street crossing would not be considered at this time because Grove street was not an official part of the PUC investigation. G. R. Mitchell, representing the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, stressed the immediate need for upgrading safety conditions at the Redlands crossings and stated that "after all these years" some action should be taken to reduce the danger.

Railroad signal at Grove street now deleted Plans for the installation of a railroad crossing signal at Grove street have been delayed indefinitely. Public Works director John B. Shone informed the City Council this week. Shone, is requesting the Council to adopt resolutions authorizing implementation of 1965-66 gas tax projects, reported that the Grove street railroad signal had been deleted from the list of projects originally approved. The original proposal included 57,500 for the city's share of the railroad crossing signal on Grove. Shone explained that it has been discovered that Grove street does not qualify for gas tax monies under state requirements. He added that steps will be taken to add the street to the list of qualifying streets and that the crossing signal appropriation would be added "at a later date." The question of the Grove street signal was also raised yesterday by Mrs. John Hatfield, 1028 W. Crescent, during a Public Utilities Commission hearing on the installation of flashing signals at Tennessee, Church, University and Judson streets.
