Annual Fairmount Cemetery clean-up will be Jan. 17

The annual Fairmount Cemetery clean-up is planned for Jan.17. During the cleanup, City of San Angelo employees will remove flowers and other items from gravesites so cemetery grounds can be cleaned and trimmed.

Anyone who wishes to preserve items should remove them from gravesites before the end of the day Monday, Jan. 16. Items can be returned to the sites beginning Jan. 24.

Items left at gravesites will be picked up and held for one week so residents can pick them up. If items are not picked up, the City will dispose of them beginning Jan. 27.

The City is reminding lot owners that flowers should be placed only to the sides or in cradles on top of monuments. This allows for maintenance of gravesites.
