|Vaults, Fencing & Monument Installation|
No new fencing, enclosures, railings or copings are allowed in the City Cemetery. The City encourages maintenance of existing fencing and enclosures. The City is not responsible for any damage by others to existing fences or enclosures.
It is the responsibility of the individual or monument company to obtain permission from the Cemetery Manager before a monument, headstone or corner marker is placed on a lot.
No survey markers of any kind will be removed.
All corner markers, enclosures, or other approved markers must be placed inside the boundary of the survey marker.
New installation of vaults (with or without handles), used to enclose burial caskets, must now be covered completely by dirt, with the exception where family lots already contain such vaults. The individual or funeral home is responsible for requesting this exception from the Cemetery Manager.
For more information, please refer to the article concerning Ordinances and Policies.
