Cemetery Center Of Discussion At Council Meeting

The Memphis Cemetery was a hot topic during the June 6 meeting of the city's board of aldermen.

The council praised the work done by the water and street departments to complete the resurfacing of the facilities outer road.

Superintendent Roy Monroe indicated the process went smoothly and asked the council to consider renting the machine to replace the other access roads at the cemetery when funds become available.

Mayor Ron Alexander read a letter from a Burlington, IA couple who stated they had been to a dozen area cemeteries over the Memorial Day weekend and the Memphis site was far and away the best kept cemetery in the region.

The council concurred with the opinion and thanks Superintendent Dennis Howard and his crew for their work in preparing the site.

While the news was positive regarding Memorial Day, there were a couple issues regarding ordinances that Howard requested the Council clear up.

Howard stated he had been approached by an individual wanting to purchase a lot at the cemetery for the family pet. He noted there is no ordinance prohibiting this but stated he wanted council approval before doing so.

After discussing the issue the council agreed to discuss the issue with the city attorney with plans to create an ordinance that will prohibit pets from being buried at the Memphis Cemetery.

Howard also asked the council to review the regulations regarding tree planting at the cemetery. He noted the initial plantings are not a problem but noted that the trees will eventually grow larger root systems which ultimately will cause problems in a cemetery.

The council noted that existing city ordinances limit plot owners to the placement of a headstone. New buyers will be informed of this at the time of the purchase.
