Council is seeking feedback on a draft ‘Cemetery Policy’.
The draft policy details how Council proposes to sustainably manage, maintain and operate the Shire’s public cemeteries while ensuring compliance with current legislation.
This is an important service that needs to be carried out as sensitively as possible so the draft policy provides guidelines for safe, consistent and socially acceptable standards for people visiting and working at Council-managed cemeteries.
It even covers issues such as the planting of memorial trees and the placing of tributes.
Visit www.yoursaywingecarribee.com.au/cemeteries to learn more about the proposal and share feedback by 9am, Tuesday 28 January 2020.
For further information on the availability, pre-need reservations, placement of ashes or memorialisation options please contact Council on 4868 0888.
