MOTTVILLE TOWNSHIP CEMETERY RULES

 

The Purpose of the rules and regulations contained herein are the result of much study and investigation of the overall problems which have resulted over the past years within the Mottville Township Cemetery.  They are not intended to restrain lot owners of interment rights, but to protect and preserve the cemetery and the community.  Your cooperation and adherence to these rules will assist us to create and preserve the simplicity, safety and ease of upkeep of the Mottville Township Cemetery.

******************************

 

All headstones shall be of granite or similar acceptable material and shall be furnished by a legitimate monument company.  Any exception to this rule would have to be approved by the Township Board and would require detailed plans of proposed exception.

 

All headstones or other permanent memorial markers must be placed on a footing.  All arrangements for footings are to be made with the sexton and costs to be paid by the party requesting the footing.  The marker will be placed by the sexton, Monument Company or a designated employee of Mottville Township.

 

NO plantings of any kind are allowed in the ground.  All plantings have to be in urns.

 

Urns are to be placed on each side of the headstone or marker on concrete pads.  Any urn not planted for 2 years will be removed.

All decorations must be removed from graves EXCEPT for saddles or properly placed urns by April 1 of each year and may not be replaced until May 15 to allow time for spring cleanup.  Also decorations shall be removed EXCEPT for saddles and properly placed urns by September 15 and may not be replaced until November 1 to allow time for fall cleanup.

 

Keep in mind when placing decorations on a grave, if it requires the sexton to stop and remove it before going on with mowing or trimming, the object in question will be removed by the sexton.  Keep all urns and decorations on the left and right side of the headstone and as close to the headstone as possible.
