Magistrates Rule on Butler County Road

In a vote of 3-2, Butler County's magistrates decided to close Aberdeen Cemetery Road... a second (and some say safer) point of acess to Highway 79 from Highway 1382 in Butler County.

Church members wanted the road closed since many drivers go right through their parking lot, posing a safety hazard.

The road will be closed down, but some are hoping they can get right of way for another road behind the nearby cemetery that would offer that second point of safe access to Highway 79.
