"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives."

Scottsboro City Council Work Session, June 17, 2013 - 4 Part Video Series - Cedar Hill Cemetary, Municipal Courts Issues

Monday evening was a work session of the Scottsboro City Council. This report will be presented in 4 different video parts due to the length of the session. Part 1 is the Cedar Hill Cemetery Issue; Part 2 will cover Recycling Report from Scottsboro's Solid Waste Department, Holidays and Uniform Bids. Part 3 & 4 will involve the Municipal Court IT Software issue. 
"...Cemetery needs help...looks like junk yard... it is just not a beautiful restful place...mish mesh of personal items...I would like to see some kind of regulations;" quote from Ms. Helen Vizzini on the condition of Cedar Hill Cemetery. Ms. Vizzini presented several photos expressing her concern about the cemetery's appearance. 
The Cedar Hill Cemetery memento and appearance issue could turn into a hot button First Amendment issue. City officials have indicated they understand the complexity of this issue and intend on using the utmost care in insuring that citizens religious values are upheld while maintaining reasonable standards of cemetery appearance.
