A request to vacate an alley in Liberty Mills was denied unanimously Monday during the regular Wabash County Board of Commissioners meeting.

District 3 commissioner and vice-chairman Barry J. Eppley said after an initial hearing last year to review the request, “subsequent investigation” had caused the commissioners to decide against it.
