AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- City councilors say it was a break-down in communication that caused one Auburn cemetery to go without flags for veterans last Memorial Day.
Somehow, said Councilor Leroy Walker, Oak Hill Cemetery was missed.
"It was upsetting that no one put out flags for our heroes," said Walker. "There was too may organizations involved, and everyone was pointing fingers at who was supposed to do it."
Walker said there is about 5,500 graves in Oak Hill, and estimates about 2,000 are veterans.
"The further I went, the sadder I became," said City Councilor Tizz Crowley, remembering how she walked through the forgotten cemetery last year.
"I went to the city and said it can't happen again," said Crowley.
This year, they're doing Memorial Day right.
Three weeks ago, Public Works crews started sprucing up the Oak Hill Cemetery.
