City crews mow Green Castle Cemetery; community meeting Tuesday

Overgrown grass and weeds, trash and, most recently, a dead dog. Those are the complaints made by people whose loved ones’ final resting place is at Green Castle Cemetery.

On Saturday, Dayton street maintenance crews were out mowing at the cemetery, 2045 Nicholas Road.

Residents said they were happy to see the city’s involvement.

One man, who declined to give his name, said he is a part of the community effort to mow the grass.

“We are hoping that citizens who have family members out here, we will come together for this project. We want to restore dignity and pride to our ancestors.”
