News from the Office of City Councilor, Sal LaMattina, on fencing restoration at Copp’s Hill Burying Ground:
City Councilor Salvatore LaMattina, Chairman of the Committee on City and Neighborhood Services held a hearing on Thursday, December 13, 2012 to have a $73,000 grant accepted and expended for the city’s Parks and Recreation Department. The grant is from the Mass. Cultural Council Cultural Facilities Fund and will be used to restore the ornamental fencing at the Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Most of the work will be done on the Charter St. side of Copp’s Hill. Smaller interior fencing may also be restored based on the incoming bids and another potential grant of $25,000 from the Freedom Trail Foundation. The committee has sent the request to the Boston City Council to approve at Wednesday’s (Dec 19th) Council Hearing.
