Lincoln Cemetery Authority proposal & owner facing charges

The Montgomery City Council discussed a neglected cemetery during Tuesday nights council meeting.  A special committee recommended criminal charges against the owner of the Lincoln Cemetery.  The committee also recommended establishing a rehabilitation authority.  "We've submitted a draft ordinance to the city council and that will be looked at and we'll go further with that initiative," explains Montgomery City Attorney Jason Paulk.

The ordinance to create the Lincoln Cemetery Rehabilitation Authority will be taken up in two weeks.

The owner of the cemetery, Frederick Cheney will be in court June 4th.
