Cemetery rules to be enforced to ensure a clean cemetery

The name has been removed out of respect, this is an example of a site that follows all the rules of the cemetery.

After many phone calls and Facebook posts, it was brought to the attention of the City that the condition of the cemeteries in Port Clinton were not up to par. Since then, Mayor Vince Leone has issued an apology taking personal responsibility for the problem and is doing everything he can to make the situation right.

“There was definitely an outcry from the people,” said Mayor Vince Leone, “and I appreciate that the people let me know about the conditions. To ensure that we can have a manicured, clean cemetery, we need to enforce the cemetery rules. For years the rules have been relaxed.”

Former Port Clinton Mayor (and former Marine) John Fritz served as master of ceremonies for the moving Memorial Day service at Port Clinton Yacht Club. This service honored those who lost their lives at sea. Wreaths were cast into the river from the City Harbor Patrol boat to honor them.
