Hillside Cemetery Upkeep
Annual preparation for Memorial Day will commence on April 15th. During this time, all faded flowers and non-permanent containers and/or decorations shall be removed. Seasonal flowers, cut flowers, artificial plants or flowers and wreathes shall be permitted over the grave space area from May 25th thru June 9th, 2013. Decorations, potted plants, planters and other memorabilia (including solar lights) shall be placed at the direction of the Sedgwick City Office. If these are to remain on a permanent basis, prior permission shall be obtained from the same office. If they are not placed in designated areas they shall be removed by cemetery personnel. If a cemetery space is adorned in such a manner that it makes it difficult for our maintenance crew to mow or weed, it will be the responsibility of the family to maintain the gravesite. If the gravesite is not maintained properly, it will be at the discretion of maintenance personnel to remove decorations to enable them to maintain the space. Hillside Cemetery and City of Sedgwick are not responsible for any containers or decorations of any kind placed on any grave.
