Elmwood Cemetery Decoration Removal Notice

Notice for Public

Elmwood-St. Joseph Cemetery Winter Decoration Removal Date is April 1st.

The Elmwood - St. Joseph Municipal Cemetery would like to remind families and friends to remove their winter decoration as soon as possible.

Meaningful winter decorations they want to keep should be taken off gravesites no later than Wednesday, April 1, 2020.

The City Cemetery Staff will begin removing and disposing of all non-regulation decorations shortly after the April 1st deadline. Regulations allow flowers and other items to remain on gravesites, but they must be in flower boxes, permanent vases or securely attached to monuments. All glass and ceramic items are never allowed and will be removed, as they are a hazard when mowing and trimming around gravestones.

Please contact the office for specific details on the regulations or the removal of decorations. You may call 421-3687 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday thru Friday.
