In the aftermath of the arrest of a Lakeview Cemetery groundskeeper for allegedly stealing money and equipment, there is a call to stakeholders and plot owners to take action.

Richard Ehrlich is the sole board member left at the cemetery, and says something needs to be done to provide more oversight and competence in running the hallowed ground.

“We can talk about the future and how we intend to make a strong management…with people from the community who have competence and concern about the cemetery,” Ehrlich said.

Groundskeeper Scott Goodrich was arrested in February and is accused of stealing money and selling equipment.

A meeting to reconstruct the board will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday at Ithaca Town Hall.
