I want to put a headstone at my loved ones grave. What is the process?

All headstone placements must be permitted through the City Secretary's office and requires a $20.00 marker permit fee.  Standard sizes for single graves are usually 24 by 12, 28 by 16, or 18 by 24 inches. Standard sizes for companion graves are usually 36 by 18 inches or 44 by 14 inches. If you wish to have a flower vase at the gravesite it must be attached to the headstone. NO BENCHES ALLOWED (unless part of the headstone). 

You must notify the City Secretary's office Three (3) days prior to a headstone placement so that the cemetery crew can properly mark the space for the placement.  

Space sizes:

Individual Full Space: 5ft x 10ft or 4ft x 10ft (you can call City Hall if you have questions on which space size your loved one is in)

Urn Space: 2 1/2 ft x 3 1/4 ft

Baby space: 5 ft x 3 1/4 ft
