Discussion and debate about cemetery rules and regulations dominated the Dorr Township Board‘s monthly meeting Thursday evening.
Some residents have reported they are unhappy with the cemetery rules and the manner in which maintenance has been conducted.
Township Supervisor Jeff Miling stated that the aggressive cleanup that involved removal of shrubs, trees and dead flowers was overdue because foliage covered many tombstones. Miling insisted that maintenance could not be accomplished with the random placement of trees and shrubs.
Dan Young spoke at length, for more than 20 minutes, presenting a long list of complaints he has with the Dorr Cemetery. He asked each board member individually if he or she had a plot in the cemetery and asked which one of them had inspected the facility.
Young also had three other family members speak to the board about the issue.
Miling reported that Young had visited the township hall offices and was so unruly that police had to be called to have him removed from the premises.
