Davis to hold meeting to discuss City Cemetery improvements


South Bend Common Councilman Oliver Davis has been the driving force behind a plan to improve City Cemetery. On Wednesday we could find out what kind of progress he and volunteers are making.

Davis will be holding a meeting to discuss volunteer applications. It will start at 5 pm at the O'Brien Recreation Center located at 321 E. Walter Street.

The Councilman says his plan will take five years of work, including restoring tombstones and gates and adding more lighting. Davis hopes the project will not be a burden on the city's wallet.

"Our goal is to solicit donations from other groups, other families who have been part of the community so it will not all be funded through taxpayer dollars," Davis told FOX28 in July.
