Magistrates on the Trigg County Fiscal Court decided Monday evening not to appeal a ruling from last month that allows part of a Linton road owned by Timbervest to remain closed.

No formal vote was taken, but magistrates seemed to agree that any decision made on appeal could possibly result in even more roads closed. Trigg County Attorney Randy Braboy said they were almost to the 30-day limit to decide whether to appeal the ruling, and added that an appeal would probably take one or two years.

The decision, made last month by 56th Circuit Judge C.A. Woodall IIII, leaves open more than two-thirds of what the county was fighting over – roughly 2.2 miles from McNichols Road back to Fire Tower Road, Braboy said last month.

If Timbervest were to put gates back up, passage from Boren Cemetery to Atkins Cemetery Road back to Ky. 164 at Blackhawk Road would be blocked, as Timbervest owns the property and the road in that area, said Braboy, who added that they are asking whether Timbervest can actually gate the area in question.
