The council took the time to recognize a completed Eagle Scout project at the city’s cemetery during tonight’s city council meeting.
Scout: Tanner Sorensen of Troop 507
Project statement from Tanner Sorensen: “The existing plot markers in lot B at the Mt Pleasant cemetery consisted of aluminum spikes placed in the sod Many were overgrown with grass, or buried 2-3 inches and impossible to find without a tape measure. We dug one foot squares in the sod and cement the plot markers in them so they can be more visible to cemetery patrons. Over 100 total man-hours was spent on the project.”
