By a 4-1 vote Thursday night, the Perryville City Council rejected a proposed subdivision that would have been near Kentucky's largest Civil War battlefield."I'm relieved," said Sherry Robinson, a member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, who had spoken against the proposal."Right now, we're ecstatic." Marion"Pete" Coyle Jr., the landowner who had wanted to develop a portion of his farm on U.S. 150 just west of downtown Perryville, had little comment after the vote."I'm upset right now," Coyle said as he left City Hall.
