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.

We are not mutts, we are human beings that deserve what we paid for. No we are not going to clean the cemetery. We paid for perpetual care and that’s what we deserve. Actually the time I check mutts had more rights than humans. May God have mercy on all the negative and derogatory comments from such people. Remember about Karma you will eat those words. Cowards that hide behind words. Disclose your identity.

Well if my relatives were buried here I wouldn’t wait on the owner (who obviously doesn’t care and will probably have fines reduced or not even pay them)to clean up the mess. If relatives cared SOOO much they wouldn’t let it get that bad in the first place. One man would not disgrace my families resting place. It looks like posting the article everyday and complaining ALOT is helping to resolve the issue. My father is buried on a plot that is maintained but It doesn’t stop me from going out and cleaning up every few weeks! Like I said… Read more »

I’m going to go ahead and write this story for you for the next week…Fine goes up to $300…$400..$500…$600…$700. That’s your headline for the next 5 days unless something CHANGES. A fine that owner will probably never have to pay. Until then write about real news please. I’m surprised the RACE card hasn’t been played yet since owner is white….

You “thought” it was supposed to cover something and I bet in your paperwork there were listed exclusions. In this case, the families paid for grounds maintenance, upkeep and cleaning and they are not getting it.

This place has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau. AND there is only ONE complaint filed on them. Get busy people, make complaints and get it on record with the BBB.
