Town may have to fix grave error
“You don’t just pick people up and move them,” Selectmen Chairman George Lawrence said. “There’s a lot involved and it can be costly. We’re really hoping we don’t have to go through that.”
He said the issue arose when DES was alerted the town was adding fill to improve ball fields located in an area behind the dam. Gallagher said because the fill could interfere with flood control, surveyors were sent. They discovered the graves were encroaching on state land.
Lawrence said that a burial in the affected area of the cemetery was to have taken place Saturday, but an alternate gravesite had to be found in Central Cemetery.
