WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Twenty-eight days after the owner of Calvary Cemetery promised families their loved ones’ finally resting place would be cleaned up, the mess remains.
Monday grass was still uncut and overgrown. So now it looks like the City of Wilmington may takeover the clean-up.
City spokeswoman Malissa Talbert said the property has been re-inspected and is still out of compliance, although it looks like a little bit of clean-up has been done.
Talbert said the city has begun fining owner Jack Krupicka $100 a day. She said as of Monday, the city was also preparing to get price quotes for the clean-up costs. A lien will be taken out on the property to recoup the city’s costs, if it cannot get the issue resolved with Krupicka.
