What are the current conditions of the Cemetery?

At the moment (summer 2019) we are addressing at least one out of three graves (far more than normal sunken volumes of one in five) showing a high need for additional soil (and time) resources. Some water table shifting is being observed even for grave sides older than 20+ years.

Parks are continuing to be engaged in maintenance of this area, but ongoing wet conditions is complicating the work, including leading to tracks of machinery, etc. in the area. The Town is limited by weather and soil conditions, and weather patterns are anticipated to remain wet for the near future.
