Commissioners extend building moratorium

After much debate Monday, Shelby County Commissioners voted 8 to 6 to extend their building moratorium in Shelby County.

The moratorium, passed six months ago, prevents all applications for residential land use permits in unincorporated Shelby County.

Monday, commissioners voted to give planning officials another 90 days to finish mapping the county.

The extended moratorium now expires on July 31.
