A jury has reached verdicts in two Road 5 cases in Putnam County. The Lima News reports the jury found that William and Mary Kay Weis and Mark and Patricia Maag were only entitled to the amount the county offered them for their land in the first place. The Weis family will get $10,000 and the Maag family will get more than $6,700.

The families sued after the county used eminent domain to seize the land needed to widen Road 5 south of Leipsic. They claimed the commissioners violated sunshine laws and didnt offer the proper amount for the land.
