Palestine Herald-Press


Following a brief public hearing on the matter, Anderson County Commissioners agreed to close the end portion of a county road located in Precinct 2 during their regular meeting on Monday.

The closure of a 975-foot “end portion” of ACR 2219 was first brought to commissioners at the Feb. 24 meeting, with Precinct 2 Commissioner Rashad Q. Mims I explaining that part of the road was only accessed by two property owners.

No one spoke either for or against the closure of the road during the public hearing, with commissioners subsequently approving its closure.

ACR 2219 is located in the Tennessee Colony area south west of U.S. 287 North.

Also on Monday, commissioners:

• APPROVED bills.
