Alpena Council Discuss Proposed Changes to Evergreen Cemetery RulesFri, 31 Jul 2020 06:02:20 EDT
During their most recent meeting (July 20th), Alpena City Council discussed possible changes to Evergreen Cemetary rules.
Mayor Matt Waligora said he was contacted by McWilliam's funeral home on behalf of a family regarding current cemetery regulations. Their request was denied for placing a laser engraved stainless-steel plot marker due to current regulation prohibiting metal.
Current regulations were discussed with staff and Council to see if there are appropriate changes that can be made. Some proposed changes included allowing official veteran flag holders and stainless-steel headstones or grave markers as well as allowing leashed dogs and motorcycles.
Council did not vote on any of the changes but they decided to table it until their next meeting (August 3rd).
