HARRODSBURG (AP) — City Commissioners in Harrodsburg are planning a special meeting to discuss what to do about trash recently found buried in a cemetery.
Commissioner Marvin Isham told WLEX-TV that the Environmental Protection Agency was called in after oil bubbled up during flooding at Spring Hill Cemetery.
He says he was with an EPA representative when digging at the site began and they found dozens of old tires, scrap metal, fencing and car parts while searching for the source of the oil. Isham says some of the items are from as far back as 2007.
Isham said commissioners plan to hold a special meeting Thursday to discuss what to do about the discovery.
