Guidelines

 

  1.

Funeral Directors are to notify City Hall before interment, giving name and the site of burial. A $150 refundable deposit and a $50 refundable deposit are required. After burial, an inspection will be made by the City to affirm that there has been no damage to adjoining lots – walls, headstones, landscape, etc. before a refund will be given.

 

  2.

Burial requires a concrete or metal vault.

 

  3.

If lots are enclosed, the walls should be marble, gray or white granite, brick or masonry; no loose brick, timbers, etc. All plans for enclosure or walls shall be submitted to City Hall for review and approval before construction begins.

 

  4. Trees or bushes may not be planted on lots. 

  5.

If there are trees presently on the lot and this would require raking leaves, it will be the responsibility of the owner/owners. As a reminder, these lots have not been and will not be sold with a perpetual maintenance agreement.

 

  6.

Remove all faded, unsightly or damaged artificial arrangements and all dead flowers.

 

  7.

No admittance from dusk to dawn; this helps to reduce vandalism.
