Other problems: A small handful of volunteers have been working for years to try to reverse the effects of many many years of neglect and vandalism.  This cemetery is full of California's Gold Rush History as well as Spanish and Civil war veterans. 
Previous contacts: City officials are aware of the problems but the city has been financially strapped for years.  The cemetery has been low on the list of priorities.  There may be some hope for the next fiscal budget however.
Current Status: Work underway - Minor improvements made
