ASKING TOUGH QUESTIONS

Dumping ground located near cemetery

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

Shelly Strong is frustrated by a mountain of trash that's that been dumped at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Saginaw.

"It angers me a lot," Strong said.

And she wants answers.

"I don't understand why the city can't take care of it when they're cleaning off the graves," Strong said.

And that's exactly what Strong and Joann Albrecht do. They clean off grave sites.

According to Albrecht, if the dead could speak they wouldn't be happy about this.

"How did this ever happen? Who let this happen?" Albrecht said.

 A dumping ground is disturbing, especially in such close proximity to the cemetery where people go to visit and remember their loved ones.

“There’s a rummage sale sign back there, and three toilets,” Strong said.

We called the city three times to ask the tough questions and at press time we have not received a call back on what can be done to fix the problem.
