I am pleased to share this message regarding the Baptist Cemetery in Sugarcreek, Stark County, Ohio from Mr. Mark A. Phillips, Fiscal Officer:
May 8, 2013
"The township trustees discussed the cemetery you are referring to at their meeting on Monday. The cemetery was at some point in time abandoned, and its care has since become the responsiblity of the township. The township makes an effort to keep up with the cemetery. Several fallen trees have been cut and removed from the plots. The grass is mowed several times per year. The trustees always make sure the site is mowed and accessible for Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day. With the limited resources available to the township and no direct funding source for cemtery maintenance, the trustees believe they are properly caring for the cemetery with the resources available. Again, the trustees appreciate your concern and thank you for voicing that concern to them."
Mark A. Phillips
