Commissioners approved a lot line revision Nov. 6 for the transfer of property from the LaQuinta Inn -- formerly Holiday Inn -- to St. Sebastian Roman Catholic Church on Siebert Road.

Margaret Kirchner, parish manager, said the hotel is giving them the triangular piece of property, which is 100 feet by 300 feet. It will be used for an access driveway on church property.
