Cemetery Commission Meeting
Present: Pat Caron, Sarto Caron and Brian Johnson. Cemetery landscaper Ken Basdekis was also present.

We discussed fertilizing the cemetery grounds.  The fertilizer is to be picked up by Ken.  Ken brought it to our attention that grubs are prevalent on the Senior Center property adjacent to the cemetery which he will monitor and treat if necessary.

The expenditure of available funds was discussed and the following ideas were put forward:
  • The wrought iron fence is in need of repair or replacement.
  • The repair of headstones in the older part of the cemetery.  Brian is to investigate.
Brian Johnson made a motion that all funeral homes be notified that after the phone notification of a pending burial that the “Acknowledgement, Agreement and Release” form must be completed and sent/delivered to the Cemetery Sexton. All were in favor.

No citizens came.

Meeting adjourned at 8:15 p.m.

Respectfully submitted by:

Patricia J. Caron, Secretary

Copies to:  Select Board, Town Clerk and File.
