The Cemetery Commission may grant and/or convey by deed, lots in Town owned cemeteries and may make regulations governing the sale, price and care of the lots. Cemetery Commissioners may set aside a portion of a Town cemetery for the burial of indigent persons, and may make regulations for the use of this special area.
Cemetery Commissioners are elected to staggered 5-year terms from the floor during Town Meeting. The Cemetery Commission meets on the third Thursday of each month at 9:30 am from April through November at Maplehurst Cemetery or the Town Office in the event of rain. Members of the public are welcome.
Cemetery Commissioners may maintain the public cemeteries and hire someone to perform this work. The expenses, not to exceed the budget approved at the annual Town Meeting, are paid by the Selectboard, drawing orders on the town treasury.
The Cemetery Commissioners (and not the Selectboard) may appoint individuals to fill vacancies on the board.
Town Cemeteries are: Maplehurst, Elmhurst, Lee, Carpenter, Blanchard (Old North), Weatherhead Hollow, Wilkins Hill, Stark, Billings and Groll.
