It would seem that a gallon of ink has been spilled over this problem. But the matter of the gates at Spring Hill Cemetery being left unlocked at night remains an issue for some of us who are concerned about possible vandalism. Despite efforts on the part of Mayor Campbell, the Harrodsburg police chief does not see closing the gates as being the responsibility of the policemen. He is, therefore, unresponsive to Mayor Campbell's wishes.
City employees who work at Spring Hill Cemetery are of the strong opinion that closing the gates nightly is not one of their duties. So the question naturally begs to be asked, Whose job is it to close and lock the gates at Spring Hill? There was a time when this was not a question, nor was there any reason for concern over this matter. The gates were closed and locked without fail. Moreover, a sign was in plain view showing the exact hour, depending on whether it was summer or winter, when the gates would be closed. That policy worked to absolutely no one's disadvantage.
