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.
