Lake Geneva Considers Dissolving Cemetery Board
According to the Lake Geneva Regional News, the city is considering dissolving the Oak Hill Cemetery Board. The board oversees the city’s cemeteries and the funds that it receives from the sale of cemetery lots. There are five members on the board, but three positions are currently vacated. Each member is appointed by the mayor and serves a two-year term. The city council’s finance, licensing and registration committee voted unanimously on April 7 to transfer responsibilities to Public Works, but it still needs to be approved in full by the City Council. The Public Works department already mostly oversees cemetery funds, including both operating and perpetual care funds.
