Tumbling down in Skaneateles

Town Councilor David Laxton recommended surveying the boundaries of the cemetery as well.

Town employee Bruce Famoly who co-chairs the town conservation committee said, "I'm a water guy, not a cemetery guy, but I'd be willing to volunteer to get the rotten stuff out of there."

According to Batlle, there are trails very near the graves and jumps for mountain bikes.

The plot was estimated to be about 130 by 160 feet.

"It's not huge until you start cleaning it," Famoly said, "then it's huge."

Technically the town is responsible for this cemetery as it was excluded from the nearby properties during sales.

Famoly and Batlle will take the lead on a volunteer clean up day at the cemetery. If you are interested in helping, contact Janet Aaron at the town hall 685-3473.
