Bids Due Next Month For Cemetery Cleanup

Hurricane Katrina made quite a mess at a sacred, historic site in Biloxi.

The oldest section of Biloxi City Cemetery remains in ruins. Katrina's wind and water toppled tombstones, destroyed fences and damaged grave markers.

The City of Biloxi is seeking bids on the cleanup, which FEMA will help finance. Cemetery caretaker, Mike McDonnell, says the bids are due by October 4th.

The clean up and restoration project is expected to take at least nine months.
