Winslow Could Have to Pay to Protect Cemetery 

A Maine town might have to pay to stabilize a bank to protect the graves in an historic cemetery from being exposed by erosion. Officials in Winslow say they’ve been told by the attorney general’s office that the former owner of the Fort Halifax dam, Florida, Power & Light Energy, probably can’t be compelled to pay for the slope stabilization work near the Fort Hill Cemetery. The dam was removed in 2008. Last March a landslide pushed a small island of trees and debris into the Sebasticook River. The nearest grave is about 30 feet from the edge of the slide and none were disturbed. Town officials and some residents are concerned about future slides. The company says it shouldn’t have to pay.
