County Changes Name of Road to Honor the Late Porter Webb

The name of a road in the sixth district is being changed to honor a man in that community who passed away last year.
The county commission Monday night voted to change the name of Mason Cemetery Road to Porter’s Way upon the recommendation of the planning commission. The request was initiated by property owners in the area as a way to remember the late Porter Webb.
“A couple of months ago we were approached by some people who had bought some property from the estate of Porter Webb who were wanting to change the name of Mason Cemetery Road to Porter’s Way. They wrote a letter to the county mayor’s office which says “the landowners along Mason Cemetery Road including D &J Farming, Jonathon Puckett, Charles Webb, Greg Driver, and David and Nancy Womack respectfully ask to have the name of the road changed to Porter’s Way. We are all in agreement for this change to honor the late Porter Webb” and they all signed it. I passed this along to the county commissioners in that area Betty Atnip and Jeff Barnes. The planning commission met last Monday night and recommended the name change. There are no structures on this road so there will not have to be any 911 addresses changed,” said County Mayor Tim Stribling.
