The Bedford City Commission held its meeting on Oct. 18, 2016 at the Morgan Community Center. The Commission first discussed the status and concerns of the cemetery, sanitation and streets/sidewalks.
Mayor Todd Pollock had received a complaint from a citizen regarding the upkeep of a family member’s grave. Pollock responded that the caretaker of the cemetery had been in the hospital and unable to perform his duties.
Sanitation had no concerns.
