Town Cemetery Committee
Marach 5, 2018

Present: Russell Smith, Jody Kundreskas, Rick Lees, and chair, Jane Aiudi.

Met at 3:30 at the town office.

We approved the minutes from the last meeting.

Jody discussed the upcoming Cross Hill Cemetery repairs. It has been scheduled for June 4 – June 10 (7 days). She will be looking to skilled labor to volunteer to assist with the project. It is her experience that the gentleman that we have hired tends to work from sunup to sundown. She will be putting together more details over the next few weeks.

Jane reported on her budget presentation to the Board of Selectmen. There was a general discussion of the committee’s request, however, the amount that will be presented to the Budget Committee calls for no increases in funding.

A letter to the Boy Scout troop that removed the fence at the Methodist Cemetery was circulated for signature of those members present. Jane will send the letter to the scout master.

The group began reviewing the cemetery rules with an eye towards asking the selectmen to expand the rules to include all the cemeteries in Vassalboro. The current rules only apply to the North cemetery. This review will continue over the next couple of meetings to produce a draft to present to the Selectman prior to the town meeting in June.

The next meeting will be April 2 at 3:30

The Meeting was adjourned.
