BENTON, Mo. -- The Scott County Commission accepted a bid Thursday for the mowing of the Forest Hill Memorial Gardens Cemetery near Morley, Mo., by James Watkins of Oran, Mo. Watkins had the low bid at $250 per mowing.

Commissioner Dennis Ziegenhorn said the cemetery will be mowed about every 10 days through the summer. The state attorney general's office put the cemetery in the county's care earlier this month after the owner was no longer able to maintain the cemetery.

Ziegenhorn said he's heard someone may buy the cemetery soon but didn't divulge details.
