Becky Meadows was presented with two offers, and the City of Lawrenceburg’s just wasn’t the best.
The Public Works Committee of the city council offered to provide a flat stone grave marker to each of Meadows’ family members whose graves are currently only marked by wooden crosses.
Those wooden crosses are in violation of the city’s cemetery ordinance. However, Meadows said she didn’t receive a copy of the ordinance until the crosses had been up for several months.
Committee members recognized that the city had wronged the family.
