Decoration of Cemetery Lots
Sprays and wreaths made from fresh cut flowers will be allowed, but they will be removed within two weeks, or if in the Town Board’s opinion when they become unsightly or detrimental.
Christmas blankets and wreaths will be allowed from December 1st through march 1st.
Artificial sprays and wreaths will be allowed from May 1st through June 15th and from December 1st through March 1st. The Town Board shall remove all artificial sprays and wreaths when they become unsightly or blown off the graves.
The placing of boxes, shells, stones, boulders, toys, metal designs, ornaments, chairs, settees, vases (unless permanently placed in a monument), glass, urns, fences, wood or metal cases, temporary grave markers, and similar articles upon lots, shall not be permitted.
Artificial or fresh cut flowers may be placed in a metal vase at any time; however, they will be discarded when dead, faded, broken or anything of a similar nature. This vase must be set in cement with a minimum of a three (3) inch border and within six(6) inches of the monument or be an actual part of the monument.
Bushes or trees of any kind except rose or peony are not allowed. This includes juniper, pfitzer, or the like. Rose bushes or peonies will be allowed; however, only one per grave space. These also must be planted within the (10) inches of the front and sides of the monument.
Live flowers may be planted and cultivated on any grave at any time.
No planting shall be permitted in the East Section except in an approved vase.
The town shall not be held liable for lost, misplaced, or broken vases or damage by the elements, thieves, vandals, or by causes beyond its control. The town reserves the right to regulate the method of decorating lots and the right to remove any decoration so that a uniform beauty may be maintained.
