How does the Town Take Care of Graves - New

New graves are covered over with gravel/dirt layer up to 1 foot below grade / finalized with black soil layer. These graves are then monitored for settling and topped off as needed.

With administration support, gravestone placement may be arranged and separately placed on undisturbed soil. 

The seeding of grass will occur as per season and conditions requirements.
