Change to mausoleum doors challenged in Lenawee County court

TECUMSEH, Mich.  — A Lenawee County judge has scheduled a hearing on a man’s complaints about city plans to replace bronze doors with aluminum ones at the 97-year-old mausoleum in Tecumseh’s Brookside Cemetery.

The Daily Telegram in Adrian says Roland von Kaler is seeking a court order to temporary halt city plans to replace the original doors with aluminum reproductions. The hearing is Monday.

His motion says the city failed to sufficiently explore its options and says the mausoleum “was built of stone, marble and bronze,” so “cheap aluminum replacement doors” would be out of character.

City Manager Kevin Welch says Tecumseh has been working on the problem for five years and says the City Council voted Aug. 15 accepted a $7,200 bid to replace the doors.
