To all families that have loved ones buried at the Beaver Dam Sunnyside Cemetery...
When the City sells a burial lot, it is our aim to provide a place where you can find comfort and peace during a time of unrest. When a family purchases a lot, the City agrees to maintain that lot in a pleasing and presentable fashion. On each deed it is written, “There shall be nothing placed above the ground on the lot, except the monument.” This includes benches, solar lighting, flags, arches, curbing, above ground foot markers, etc. All cornerstones must be flush with the ground. We are not unreasonable with families that wish to place flowers on their loved ones graves. But we must request that this be kept within reason. The following decorations will continue to be acceptable: flowers placed on the monuments (saddles, side vases, etc.) and flowers on shepherd’s hooks. Any decorations that do not fit into the above categories are not acceptable and must be removed.
All families are responsible to have item(s) removed from the gravesites by March 31, 2013 or the City reserves the right to clean Sunnyside Cemetery accordingly.
It is not our intent to bring heartache to any family, but because of continued maintenance costs we must ask families to abide by the agreement made when the lots were purchased.
If you have questions concerning this or any other concerns about Beaver Dam’s Sunnyside Cemetery, please call City Hall at 270-274-7106.
