The second reading of an ordinance calling for Wilmore to take over operations of Wilmore Cemetery was tabled by the Wilmore City Council Monday due to a delay in the deed transfer after the death of Charles Crouse, whose family currently owns and operates the cemetery.
The council was split 3-3 earlier this month on the decision to take over the cemetery. Mayor Harold Rainwater cast a tie-breaking vote in favor of doing so, and the ordinance’s first reading was approved.
The ordinance requires a second reading to be enacted, however. It is scheduled for the council’s next meeting on April 1 at 6 p.m. at Wilmore City Hall.
Crouse died March 15.
