Cemetery meeting scheduled

Friday, December 19, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

Next month, the city will hold its final Austin Cemetery Master Plan community meeting. At that meeting, cemetery master planners will present an overview of the proposal and its findings and recommendations, and also will accept input from the public. A news release from the city did not address whether the meeting will tackle the findings of a recent city audit that revealed some disturbing things about the Parks and Recreation Department’s management of the city’s municipal cemeteries. The meeting will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 24 at the Carver Branch of the Austin Public Library, 1161 Angelina St. The full plan will be available in mid-January.
