The Richmond Cemetery District is a separate entity from Richmond City. It has its own board of directors and collects a property tax levy in addition to the fee for gravesites. Its budget is separate from Richmond City.
As a service to the cemetery district, Richmond City will post information from the district on the city website. If you have questions about the cemetery, PLEASE contact the district and not Richmond City.
A visitor to the cemetery grounds this morning (May 27) backed over one of the culinary water line hose faucets. The faucet is damaged beyond repair and the pipe is broken under the road. Residents and visitors to the cemetery grounds will need to bring their own water for their plants/flowers. Water service to the grounds had to be shutoff because of the broken faucet and pipe under the roadway. The repair will not be able to be completed until the roadway can be dug up at a future date.
