*7/18/2016*   The City would like to apologize to those affected by the removal of items from some of the headstone bases.  The lots affected are primarily in the New Area.  This was not intentional; it was a result of miscommunication by staff.  The items have been placed in the cemetery shop and may be retrieved when the shop is open from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. We do allow items on the bases, so please feel free to put them back.  If you need assistance, please call City Hall at 944-3387.  Again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience or additional grief this may have caused.
