In a decision handed down Wednesday, Carter Circuit Court Judge Rebecca K. Phillips has declared an ordinance by the City of Grayson to invalid, voiding the City's dedication of a street that extends between Carol Malone Blvd. and Dixie Park.The street reverts to 4th Leaf, LLC, that filed the court action contesting the ordinance, passed in 2012, that dedicated the street and took it into the city. The ruling does not preclude the City Council from addressing the issue of dedication again in the future, but states any further proceedings before the City Council shall be designed to develop the necessary facts required to make the evidentiary determinations required by the applicable Kentucky Revised Statute. The City had determined that the street had been used as a public road for the required 5 years to make it eligible for dedication to public traffic.
