APPROVAL OF MEETING MINUTES
Mike motioned to approve the meeting minutes from the June 13, 2016 regular meeting and Art seconded. All were in favor and the minutes were approved.
Sidney gave an Administrator report:
After speaking with the Town of Minturn, Sidney learned that there has been no progress made with regards to annexing the surrounding land and the cemetery property. The Town of Minturn has far too much going on to move this up on the priority list. Dick commented that this is out of our hands.
Sidney has executed her contract via a notary and now the Board must approve and the District President, Dick, will sign the document putting it into place for a term of one year. Sidney will provide proof of insurance at the next meeting.
Sidney reported that since the last meeting the cemetery performed two casket
burial services as well as a disinterment for Farnom-Holt Funeral home on behalf of
the Leslie Sukenick family. Sidney showed several photos of the disinterment
process to the Board. The headstone was removed and taken by the funeral home.
The three plots that belonged to the Sukenick family have been returned to the
The two casket burial services each had about 150 attendees.
Ray asked Sidney to inform the Board about a power line cut down by the pump room. Apparently, a few years ago, the wood fence installers nicked the line. The repair required a concrete cut to access the repair as well as services performed by an electrician.
The Veteran’s memorial stone will be installed during the week of July 18. Sidney will work with Pat Hammon to coordinate a dedication ceremony and press release.
