Sandusky City Council approves changes to city's Cemetery Ordinance

(SANDUSKY) -- The Sandusky City Council met briefly Monday night and approved changes to the city's code of ordinance concerning cemeteries. The changes to the ordinance clarify what is allowed to be planted near gravesites. From this date forward no trees, shrubs, bushes, vines, or flora will be allowed to be planted near gravesites. Only annuals weighing less than ten pounds will be allowed. Any trees or shrubs that had been previously planted, however, will be allowed to stay. Also, Potter's Field--the cemetery's free burial ground for those unable to afford plots--will now only allow Sandusky residents and due to the limited number of plots, only cremations will be allowed. In other business, City Manager Dave Faber announced that crack sealing on Sandusky's streets is about 60-percent finished and that about four miles of crack sealing has already been put on the city's streets. The Sandusky City Council meets again Monday, November 18 at 5:30 p.m. in the council chambers.
