Despite their objections, Connersville Pike neighbors will soon have United Propane Gas as a neighbor.

During a special meeting Tuesday at noon, the Cynthiana City Commission voted 4-1 to accept the zone change recommendation and adopt the findings of the Cynthiana-Harrison County-Berry Joint Planning Commission.

Commissioner Billy Grayson voted against the zone change recommendation.
