The Orange City Cemetery has a policy that flowers and decorations need to be removed by June 15 of each year. This is to allow efficient mowing and maintenance of the cemetery. Over the past few years, we have not enforced this policy and find that more flowers and decorations are staying in the cemetery throughout the year. This year we are asking that all flowers and decorations be removed by June 15, otherwise we will remove them and bring them to the parks maintenance building in the middle of Veterans Park where family or friends can pick them up until June 30. This applies to anything that is not permanently attached to the base or gravestone. Flowers and decorations may be placed at grave sites from May 20 – June 15.
Thanks for your understanding and compliance. If you have any questions, call the City Office at 712-707-4885.
