RULES AND REGULATIONS
Cemetery rules exist for the purpose of maintaining an attractive, well-managed
cemetery. These are the rules pertaining to grave decorations,
and apply to all lot owners.
Fresh cut flowers and potted plants are permitted.
Please use the proper containers. No glass jars or oversized planters and pots.
We will continue to allow artificial flowers, which are mounted on your monuments.
You will also be permitted to have one artificial arrangement potted, or in your
ground-level vase, in front of your monument.
ARTIFICIAL FLOWERS THAT DO NOT MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS WILL BE REMOVED.
Wreaths mounted on wire stands, hanging baskets, and banners are NOT PERMITTED.
PLANTING OF ANY KIND IS PROHIBITED.
The workers will remove any flowers that are planted.
These rules are effective during the mowing season April 1 - Nov. 1
BORDERS OF ANY KIND ARE NOT PERMITTED. Marble chips, limestone or wood chips can
be very dangerous when mowing and will be removed.
ANY DECORATIONS YOU PLACE ON THE GRAVE MUST BE IN FRONT OF THE MONUMENT, NOT BEHIND
Please do not use wires, wooden stakes, or rocks to secure your grave decorations.
These can cause damage to equipment, or injury to cemetery personnel.
Statues placed on, or in front of markers or monuments that come in contact with
any mowing equipment are not permitted.
Seeding of new graves or repairs to an existing grave is to be done by cemetery
workers. Please notify the cemetery office if this type of work needs done. Planting
new seed is usually done in the spring or fall; summer planting is not very successful.
There are some rules concerning the marker you choose for your grave. The number
of grave spaces that will be marked by a monument determines the size it can be;
it may be best to check with the office before making your selection. Certain sections
of the cemetery allow only ground level markers. Size limitations are different
for these types of markers. Any interment made on an existing grave may only be
marked with a ground level marker.
Work Authorization: certain services will require a family member to sign a work
order form before the work can be started.
Persons arranging for interment must be sure to sign an interment order. To
assure that the proper burial space is used, it is recommended that a family member
come to the Administration Center and sign the interment order.
All cemetery fees must be paid prior to opening of the grave. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Any liturgies at the cemetery must use the chapel. NO GRAVESIDE LITURGIES.
Any unwanted grave spaces that are released back to the cemetery for re-sale will
be subject to a processing fee for each transaction. This fee will be deducted
from the original purchase amount for the graves. The remaining money cannot be
refunded to the owner until the spaces have been resold by cemetery management.
