Citizen urges closure of cemetery dump site


Mary Katherine Goff gave a passionate speech to Saint Jo Aldermen Wednesday pleading with the leadership to stop dumping at Mountain Park Cemetery.

“The cemetery is no place for a dump,” Goff said.

In the end, the council agreed to a temporary ban on dumping at the cemetery.

City Secretary Sherri Davis reported on Thursday afternoon, signs have been posted at Mountain Park stating both “no dumping” and “no trespassing.”
