The county commissioners heard more than two hours of what many listeners called tedious testimony yesterday on a proposed rezoning that would allow a Gamber landowner to carve five housing lots out of farmland. The commissioners said they would review the record before making a decision on the 11-acre parcel on Niner Road near Route 32. Officials said the property is considered a remainder - land left over after the allowable number of buildable lots from the original farm has been reached.
