Review cemetery rules

Friday, September 9, 2022 by Tai Moses

If you’re someone who likes to stay on top of the city’s multitudinous rules and regulations, this might interest you: The Parks and Recreation Department is preparing the updated draft of proposed rules for cemeteries for community review and feedback. Numerous rules govern the operation of cemeteries, so it’s not as cut and dried as you might think. For instance, did you know that you’re not allowed to bring a firearm into a cemetery? (And why would you need to? Dead people can’t hurt you.) You may read the draft rules and leave feedback online. You may also choose to attend a virtual meeting on Oct. 10 at 6 p.m., where you’ll get a chance to review the draft rules and regs and ask questions as well as contribute feedback.
