MINTURN CEMETERY DISTRICT
REGULAR MEETING MINUTES

Members Absent: n/a
CALL TO ORDER
Dick Cleveland called the regular meeting to order at approximately 5:00 p.m. at the Riverview Cemetery Mausoleum, Minturn, CO.
Mike, Art, Dick, Ray and Sidney were present.
APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES
Mike motioned to approve the meeting minutes from the November 9, 2015 meeting and Art seconded. All were in favor.
A. Sidney gave an Administrator report:
Sidney distributed updated Cemetery Rules & Regulations and Fee Schedule for the District. Upon review, Dick pointed out the “Former In-District” pricing for patrons and inquired about the burden of providing proof to obtain this pricing as it begs the question of how one would prove such a thing? The Board agreed that the “former-in-district” language cannot be upheld as being a legitimate basis for pricing interment rights. Sidney will revise the existing Fee Schedule to include only two price parameters: In-District and Out-of- District.
Ideas for memorializing Minturn Cemetery veterans were discussed by Board and Staff. An entry marker, made of natural stone and a bronze plaque, is an ideal and appropriate way to honor all veterans that are currently buried at River View Cemetery as well as all future veterans that will be buried here regardless of District boundaries and origin of military service. Sidney will reach out to the VFW for appropriate verbiage ideas as well as source materials necessary.
B. Ray gave a Property Manager report:
Ray reported that snow removal is going well and that we received the necessary contract revisions from A4S that include a damage/liability clause as well as the required proof of liability insurance.
Ray conducted the burial of James Hoza which took place around Thanksgiving time and there was a large turn-out of attendees. It was a cremains burial with a military/taps service.
