At a Sept. 30 meeting of the regional planning group pur- portedly approving the route only 14 persons were present and voting, according to the pe- tition. It went on to say that on Oct. 28 the chairman noted and ruled that the vote was void and in contravention of the by-laws of the commission. The by-laws require that a majority of the 31 members ap- prove such a plan, according to the petition. In spite of this, the highway commission has accepted the Sept. 30 vote as valid and will certify it to the federal highway administration unless ordered not to do so, the plaintiffs claim. The plaintiffs are Marsh C and Shirley L. Goldie, James W and Zeta M. Koenig, Cletus J and Mary L. Conrad, Warren L and Karen K. Hobbs, and Ron nie R. and Jean A. Lewis.
