After a lengthy public hearing, Lauderdale County supervisors Monday night voted to close a portion of a road that runs in front of one of the county's biggest industries.
Supervisors, by a 3-2 vote, approved the closure of the portion of Valley Road that runs in front of Atlas Roofing. Supervisors Craig Hitt, Joe Norwood and Hank Florey voted yes. Supervisors Ray Boswell and Wayman Newell voted no.
The vote came after a several-hours long public hearing, where people before and against the road closure spoke.
Opponents of the closure have vowed to appeal the decision.
