DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Commissioners voted to approve a request to authorize a notice of a public hearing at the Houston County Commission meeting Monday afternoon.
Commissioners met to address vacating a portion of McCord Road based upon a petition made by the next door landowner. The land is a portion of the road that is a right of way that was shifted, and the current road doesn’t run along the portion being vacated.
“This portion is a very small portion that connects the old McCord Road to Memphis Church Road, it’s not been used for best as we can tell for 40 years. This is just essentially a formal process that the counties due to deed the property back to the abutting landowners as it’s no longer being used by the county,” said the county attorney, Pres Register.
McCord Road is in District 3 of Houston County.
