An overgrown cemetery in ward 2 has been an eyesore to the community for years; and city councilman Tyrone Johnson says it’s time to clean it up.
He’s asking residents to assist in cleaning up Edgewood cemetery tomorrow starting at 10 a.m.
“We’re going to bring some weed eaters and a lot of tools. We’re going to try to get it to where our citizens can come here and visit their loved ones back there. It has grown up so much here. But we’re trying to eliminate all this because this grave-site goes way to the back.” Johnson said.
Edgewood cemetery is located on the corner of 10th avenue and 24th street.
Johnson added that the community will have to come together to care for the cemetery since the cemetery currently has no owner.
