LAUREL HILL The City Council has unanimously approved a resolution that allows the city to close, vacate or abandon city property to benefit nearby property owners.   



The resolution gives the city and petitioners guidelines to follow when abandoning or closing property, Councilman Larry Hendren said.



Hendren drafted the resolution following last month's council decision to forfeit ownership of an easement between 4th and 3rd Streets to adjacent property owners. 



He and city attorney Dan Campbell stated the city couldn't use the easement.
