Town Website Features
Our homepage has information for residents and visitors alike. Under the Cemetery menu, you'll find a listing of each burial that has taken place since the cemetery's existence. This listing is updated once a year, usually in January or February. There is a lot guide and searchable database so you can find anyone buried in the cemetery. Under the Forms and Permits section, we've added forms for obtaining a building permit, as well as the fee schedule. Finally under the zoning section, there are forms and FAQ's for obtaining a rezone, CUP, variance, and CSM. Check out all of our links and forms, and keep an eye out for more in the future.
