Sunset Memorial Gardens fined for 'failure to maintain cemetery grounds'
The Tennessee Department of Commerce and Insurance has fined Sunset Memorial Gardens for "Failure to Maintain Cemetery Grounds."
Channel 3 has reported on the cemetery conditions in the past.
Several visitors complained of tall grass and reported a foul smell in the mausoleum.
Five years ago, state officials shut down the cemetery, but the facility reopened based on one agreement. The owner had to create a five-person committee that provides a written response to all complaints.
Now, the cemetery has been fined $500 for the conditions of the grounds.
