'Wayne' cemetery ownership in question

TYRONE—Maintenance of the Wayne Village Cemetery happens infrequently, and the ownership of the property is in question.
John Grimmke, president of the Tyrone Union Cemetery Association, explained that while it is called the Wayne cemetery and is right next to the Wayne Baptist Church on Route 230, it is actually in the town of Tyrone.
Bob Canfield, Wayne town historian, explained that the Wayne Village Cemetery Association used to maintain the cemetery, but now that group has passed away. He said two of those members approached the Tyrone town board about taking over the cemetery around eight years ago because the association members were getting old. However, Canfield said that was never completely taken care of, leaving the ownership now in question.
Tyrone Supervisor Lisa Bishop said the town is trying to figure out the paperwork so the town can claim it. She said the town has funds to maintain it and wants to tie the work in with maintaining the Tyrone cemetery.
Meanwhile, the Wayne Village Cemetery is only occasionally mowed. Bishop said some people do work once in a while, but there is no set group that does it. She said about a month ago some work was done, and a little more this week.
However, Bishop explained that not just anyone can volunteer to maintain the cemetery. She said the workers have to have the appropriate compensation insurance (like the town highway crew has), otherwise it is a legal issue.
Bishop said if anyone is interested in working on the Wayne Village Cemetery, to contact any Tyrone board member.
