Debris In Harrodsburg Cemetery Causing Uproar Among Leaders

One city commissioner resigns then rescinds after argument over who's to blame for dumping and burying debris in cemetery.
        The Environmental Protection Agency is inspecting the Spring Hill Cemetery in Harrodsburg after tires, chain link fencing and other debris was found buried in a far corner of the cemetery two months ago.
        City Commissioner Marvin Isham, who's responsible for the city-owned cemetery says former cemetery workers told him they were ordered to bury the debris from the current Sexton Jerri Carter.
        In a city commission meeting Isham called for Carter to be fired from her post, however the rest of the commission did not second his proposal, instead wanting more evidence into what happened.
        Isham resigned from his position.
        A few days later he rescinded his resignation but not before creating animosity between he and his fellow commission members.
        Commissioner Charlie Mattingly says Isham told reporters the commission was "incompetent of making a decision."
        Sexton Carter was put on leave for a month before returning to her position.
        Harrodsburg police also assigned a detective to the case to see if there are any potential criminal charges.
