Albany creates plan for cemetery upkeep
July 31, 2019 06:10 PM
The city of Albany has a plan in place to keep the Evangelical Protestant Church Cemetery in Albany from becoming overgrown and unkempt again.
Since NewsChannel 13's stories aired earlier this month, we found volunteers from as far away as Corinth, Schoharie, and Claverack helping out to mow the lawn and clean everything up. The question was how long they would keep coming back.
Even if they don't, the city now says they have an action plan in place for cemetery neglect. They will cite a property owner, giving them five days to clean it up. If they don't, city crews will move in and the property owner can expect a bill in the mail.
