Make cemetery upkeep a higher priorityDear editor,
It is with a sad heart that I must write this letter of concern with the hope that I can be a voice for others, as well.
Family members recently returned home to pay respects to deceased loved ones and found Oak Lawn Cemetery in deplorable condition.
Waist-high grasses/weeds prevent visual and physical access to gravesites and cause considerable heartache.
I did speak with the City Public Works Director who was sympathetic.
However, “a budget issue” as an excuse is unacceptable.
I would like to ask the city council to please take this under advisement and make the cemetery a priority out of respect to those who rest there and family members who love them.
