Fairmount Cemetery’s annual cleanup is being expanded to twice a year with the next date being Wednesday, July 15. During the cleanup, City workers will remove flowers and other items from gravesites so they can clean and trim the cemetery grounds.

If you want to preserve items you should remove them from gravesites before the end of the day on Tuesday, July 14. You can begin returning the items to the cemetery on Monday, July 20.

Items left at gravesites will be picked up and held for one week so residents can recover them. If items are not recovered, the City will dispose of them beginning Wednesday, July 22.

Lot owners are reminded that, for maintenance purposes, flowers should be placed only to the sides or in cradles on top of monuments.

For more information, call 325-655-9475. The next cleanup will be Jan. 15, 2016.
