The origenal records for our cemetery have been held for the last 15 years
by one person that will not give then back. Also for the last 2 1/2 years
the last director embezeled all the money. and left the cemetery in a
mess.we need some help. The county will not help us and have cut up off of
all funding and told us to not do anything to the cemetery for the next 2
and 1/2 years untell the money that was taken has been payed back by our tax
roll money. we have been struggeling to get the place cleaned up. If you
know of any place that may be able to help us with a legal matter we would
thank you.
