Monroe Co. stakes claim on north Bibb land

Monroe Co. stakes claim on north Bibb land

Monroe County has fired a new shot in their long-running border battle with Bibb County.

They've posted a new sign on Forsyth Road showing where they believe the actual border is. It's less than a half-mile south of the traditional border line.

Bibb County officials have added to the sign -- calling Monroe's border "contested."

The two counties have battled for years on where the border should be drawn.

Last year, a Fulton County judge ordered the border moved several hundred yards into Bibb County.

That would have moved dozens of homes and millions of dollars in property into Monroe County.

But earlier this year, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled the Fulton judge was wrong.
