Kentucky appeals court rules in favor of Mayfield’s annexation of school buildings
There won’t be an election on annexing school buildings in Mayfield. The Kentucky Court of Appeals ruled Friday in favor of Mayfield’s annexation of Graves County School District’s elementary school, middle school and other buildings. The city of Mayfield passed two ordinances to annex the buildings last winter that the county board of education objected.
Friday’s decision is on a lawsuit involving the city, the board of education and the county clerk. The lawsuit says the county clerk can’t put the issue on the November ballot. The Graves County Circuit Court had ruled in favor of holding the election.
Attorney Ed Massey with the board of education tells Local 6 the board plans to appeal to the Kentucky Supreme Court.
