Cemeteries and Memorials

Please be advised the Town will be working towards tidying up the existing lots located at all Town owned cemeteries in 2016. Currently several lots are overgrown and require maintenance in the form of pruning and or removal of existing monument vegetation. Under the terms of the Cemetery By-law 2012-058, the Town, as primary caretakers of the cemeteries, does have the right to remove vegetation to maintain esthetics.

However, we are asking family members at this time to ensure that plot vegetation is maintained and managed accordingly to continue the appearance of the cemeteries. To avoid potential removal of non-maintained vegetation, please ensure you visit the cemetery prior to September 1, 2016.

 Thank You,
