The Fayette County Commission approved the closing of the Studdard’s Crossroads voting precinct during its July8 meeting. All commissioners and Commission Chairman Mike Freeman were in attendance for the meeting. Commissioner Barry Corkren made the motion to close the precinct, citing the small number of people using the precinct and the lack of adequate plumbing as reasons for the closure. Corkren added that the voters at the precinct could be relocated to nearby precincts without causing unnecessary hardships. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Billy Joe Rodgers and approved unanimously.
