CEMETERIES

Phone:785-229-3655

The Cemetery Division is a General Fund activity responsible for operations and maintenance at Highland, Hope and Roselawn Cemeteries. In addition to burial services performed, crew members provide for the perpetual care of the site. Proper maintenance and a neat appearance are high priorities, especially for occasions such as Memorial Day, which bring a large number of visitors.

 

Artificial decorations shall be permitted from October 1st to May 1st.  Artificial flowers may be placed upon graves for seven (7) days prior to and fifteen (15) days following Memorial Day of each year.  Artificial flowers which are placed in urns which are a part of a headstone and are embedded in a concrete base may be permitted at all times.
