BENTON HARBOR Benton Harbor's cemetery board has voted to hand over control of two local cemeteries to a private contractor.

According to WSJM, the mayor is in favor of the move. But just last week, city commissioners voted against a resolution in support of the privatization plan.

The mayor says that beginning October 1st, water rates will be lowered 5 percent, as a result of the contract with North Shore Memory Gardens.
