LOCAL Laurie Smith is calling for the Donnybrook cemetery to be cleaned up.Mr Smith, whose wife is buried at the cemetery, said the weeds, long grass and debris remaining from last year's storms were a fire hazard.
He said the Catholic part of the cemetery, which is adjacent to the entrance, had been cleaned up but the rest left.
"It's a heritage area, it should be kept nice, neat and tidy," he said.
Donnybrook-Balingup Shire chief executive John Attwood said the cemetery committee would be meeting today.
"We will be at the cemetery having a look at it. If there's anything raised, we will treat it as a priority," he said.
"We are in the process, subject to funding approval, of looking at upgrading Fleet Street out to the cemetery and providing a small car park.
"We're also looking at some better access to some sandy areas at the cemetery for motor vehicles and pedestrians."
The committee meets three to four times a year to look at upgrades and improvements to the cemetery.
The Department of Corrective Services sometimes helped out with general maintenance, Mr Attwood said. And he indicated the council was costing in better signage for inclusion in next year's budget.
