Scottsboro City Council President Matthew Hodges said on Tuesday that a public hearing will be held before the city council votes to close the North Broad Street railroad crossing.
"That's how I see it," said Hodges. "Folks need to have an opportunity to express their feelings on it."
Hodges added that the matter will not be on the agenda for a vote at next week's regular meeting.
At Monday's work session, Will Miller, of Norfolk Southern Railroad, encouraged the city council to close the railroad crossing.
