Cemetery Report
We are writing to request your support and understanding regarding Maintenance of Cemetery Lots in both the Old and New Sections. Because of its hilly nature and abundance of headstones, our Cemetery is a challenge to maintain physically and cost-effectively.
To help ease these burdens, we have asked in the Annual Town Reports that trees, shrubs, bushes, and perennials NOT BE PLANTED since these tend to increase mowing and maintenance costs. Compounding the problem is the lower rate of return on Perpetual Care Funds which means fewer dollars available for Maintenance now that CD rates are down.
How can you help???? By checking your Lot for conformance and by limiting plantings to annuals easily maintained by you and/or the Maintenance Crew. We recognize the deep significance that your Lot has for and your loved ones so help us through voluntary compliance to maintain and enhance the Westmore Cemetery. (Lake View Cemetery)
Appreciatively,
Westmore Lakeview Cemetery Commissioners
