Cemetery Maintenance

Operation & Maintenance
Members of our Public Works Department are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the city levee system, three cemeteries, and other various city properties. Proper maintenance and a neat appearance are high priorities, especially for occasions such as Memorial Day, which bring a large number of visitors. The crew also provides emergency response during storms, general maintenance of the city infrastructure, and assist other city crews as needed.

Memorial Day Flower Placement
Flowers and other approved arrangements may be placed on graves after 5 p.m. the Friday before Memorial Day and must be picked up within seven full days after Memorial Day. Our public works crew will pickup and dispose of any remaining arrangements after that time.
