Someone is building a visable tunnel under the cemetery, presumably to remove/move the tombs RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT! And yet, I have seen nothing written, no public forums held, no public notice made. The work is clearly visable from 99W at the base of Bull Mtn Road, but no one probably realizes what the work is for/doing, or that they are destroying/moving a pioneer cemetery! Help! Someone needs to answer for this! And the work needs to stop until some answers are given!
