Cemetery Rules and Regulations

Cemetery Rules and Regulations

These rules and regulations have been developed in order to maintain the city owned cemetery in a condition wherein individual solace and memory may be sought, and the memorial intent of those whom care for those interred can be accommodated to a greatest degree possible without unduly disturbing the peaceful and reverent intent of the City of Evart Cemeteries.

Solar Lights
Solar lights with or without batteries are not permitted on the grounds of Forest Hill Cemetery.

Decoration Removal
Winter Decorations -must be removed by April 15th
Summer Decorations- must be removed by October 1st

Decorations must be removed by the dates specified above each year. If the decorations are not removed they will be discarded by the sexton. Please note that the sexton will also remove all flowers, decorations, trees and shrubs which have become unsightly.

Decoration Containers
The use of jars, bottles, jugs etc. for cut flowers is prohibited. All containers for such flowers must be set flush with the metal container with "spikes" on the bottom. Artificial flowers are allowed "only" if contained within an urn or acceptable container. Wires, etc. used with artificial wreaths, flowers, grave blankets, etc. can be devastating to the mower, mowing equipment, and time consuming (expensive) if each item must be moved with each mowing.
