Funeral home gets initial OK to rezone property

Feuerborn Family Funeral Home plans to convert a house next door into a monument showroom and office. A neighbor doesn't want to see a collection of gravestones, but owner Reuben Feuerborn said there will be just a small number on display outside.

Allen County Planning Commission members gave their blessing Thursday to Reuben Feuerborn to convert a house next to Feuerborn Funeral Home into a monument showroom and office. Commission members voted 5-0 to reclassify the property along U.S. 54 between Iola and Gas for commercial use from its existing residential zone.

Feuerborn is keeping the name Williams Monuments for the gravestone business.

Final decision goes to Allen County Commissioners.
