Building on Cemeteries

New, 1 comment

A landowner is suing the city of Sandy Springs for denying his permit to build a home on the site of a cemetery that contains remains of some of the area's earliest residents. What's even stranger is how he acquired the property; it was sold at auction for back taxes, even though state law states that cemeteries are exempt. [Reporter Newspapers]
