Transfer of Gravesites

No lot owner may sell his/her lot or any portion thereof without the authorization of the Cemetery Sexton. When feasible and formally approved, the City will repurchase any lot or portion thereof at half of the current purchase price.

If you would like to request that the City repurchase your unused lot, please write a letter of request and address it to:
