The cemetery levy has allowed the Township to replace aging mowers and employ additional seasonal workers to insure the seven cemeteries throughout the Township are well maintained. Trustees approved the purchase of a new Gravely zero-turn mower in 2017, the third new mower in three years, to insure that the well-used equipment is in great working order and ready to meet the demands incurred in the cemeteries. Levy proceeds have also made possible paving the drives in the Lutheran and St. Michael's Cemeteries in 2016. Due to the visitations and active burial activities in these cemeteries, the improvement not only beautified the surroundings, but has provided a place to walk and drive free of the previous mud and large stones that the pavement has replaced. Special thanks to our community for recognizing the financial needs for the maintenance and preservation of our cemeteries.
