Day 27: Calvary Cemetery owner Jack Kuprica now owes city $200 for not cleaning up
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Twenty-seven days after the owner of Calvary Cemetery promised families their loved ones’ finally resting place would be cleaned up, the mess remains.
Today grass was still uncut and overgrown. So now it looks like the City of Wilmington may takeover the clean-up.
City spokeswoman Malissa Talbert says the property has been re-inspected and is still out of compliance, although it looks like a little bit of clean-up has been done.
Talbert says the city has begun fining owner Jack Krupicka $100 a day. She says as of today, the city is also preparing to get price quotes for the clean-up costs. A lien will be taken out on the property to recoup the city’s costs, if it cannot get the issue resolved with Krupicka.
