time sensitive information

Fencing around graves at the Seymour Lake Cemetery will no longer be allowed. All fencing must be removed by May 15, 2012. All fencing not removed by that date will be removed and disposed of by the maintenance crew.

Fences get tangled in the maintenance equipment; they are a repository for dead leaves and foliage which makes the cemetery unsightly and many of them are placed on the wrong side of the headstone directly in the walkway between graves forcing people to walk on someone's grave to go around them. All decorations and flowers must be placed or planted on the east side of the headstone, not the west side of the headstone. That property is owned by the Township and is maintained as a walkway between graves; it is not a part of the grave site.

Additionally, all plastic flowers placed in the walkway may be removed and all flowers planted in the walkway may be mowed over. If you have any questions, please contact the Clerk's office at (248) 627-2851/
