A new judge has been appointed to a zoning case against McCracken County Judge Executive Van Newberry and Deputy Judge-Executive Doug Harnice.

The McCracken County Fiscal Court plans to hire a Webster County attorney to fix zoning map errors, according to the county’s Attorney Michael Murphy. 

Murphy said the errors come from the switch to Geographical Information System mapping, which is much more accurate. He said finding someone slightly outside McCracken County and the contentious lots is part of the Fiscal Court’s upcoming decision to hire Tommy Joe Fridy of Sebree.
