Vol. IV No. 8 4/15/2023
Key Takeaways from the Cemetery Commission Meeting, April 11
The Commission is suggesting changes to the Cemetery bylaws to be voted on during the May Town Meeting. One will change a bylaw from "residents" to "taxpayers" may be buried in cemetery. Concern was raised at a previous meeting that the change in the bylaw is increasing the number of people eligible to be buried in Stockbridge cemetery at a time when the cemetery is running out of space. Another bylaw change would decrease the number of people on the Commission from 9 — 5 — the number who have a voice in proposing these decisions.
