Landowner Matt Baker is seeking to have the Warren Fiscal Court magistrates who voted to condemn his property and take over Beech Bend Road, be held in contempt of court. A hearing on his motion is scheduled in Logan Circuit Judge Tyler Gill's court June 30.
Magistrates Tommy Hunt, Terry Young, Robert Donoho, and Eddie Beck passed a resolution to condemn and take over the road in their May 27 fiscal court meeting. Cedric Burnam voted against the resolution, Doc Kaelin abstained.
Baker is also suing the magistrates in Warren Circuit Court to keep them from taking over the road.
