Q: Assuming a board of supervisors holds the required public hearing before officially closing a portion of a public road and removing that portion from the official map and road register, and assuming the board makes the factual findings set forth in Section 65-7-121, can the board, after the public hearing, close the road over the objection of a landowner whose land encompasses part of the road?

A: Yes. (Attorney General's Opinion to Hathorn dated December 5, 2008)
