MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - McCracken County, Kentucky leaders decided to correct a mistake that allowed a storage facility to go up near a cemetery.

Judge Executive Van Newberry said in a meeting Monday night that the buildings should have never been approved to be built on property so close to Brooks Memorial Cemetery on North Friendship Road.

To correct the situation, the county is buying the buildings for nearly $51,000 to take them down and move them.

The buildings will most likely be used again for either the animal shelter or roads department.

Once the owner signs the agreement, the buildings will come down almost immediately.
