Are decorations permitted and when are they removed?

No lot or grave shall have an enclosure of any type, such as a fence, hedge, ditch or curbing.

Decorations and ornaments, such as Christmas trees, pumpkins, balloons, and spin wheel toys, are not permitted in the cemeteries.

Anything that is hazardous to maintenance workers, cemetery employees, or machines, such as marble chips, gravel, rocks, wire pot holders, etc. is prohibited on lots and grave sites in the cemeteries.

All unauthorized plantings and prohibited items may be removed or altered at any time with the Superintendent’s authorization and without notification. The Town and its officials and employees shall not be liable for damage from any source to monuments, markers, or any other privately owned articles or materials within the cemeteries.
