Please place all items in the cart. In addition, please don’t forget to roll your carts to the curb by 7:00 AM (we recommend you roll them out the night before so you don’t forget).

Only 10 people will be allowed at graveside burial services, this includes 2 city employees, funeral home staff and the family of the deceased. Tent and chairs are not allowed.
