A called meeting of the Long Mt. Improvement Corporation(the cemetery) was held Saturday, June 18 for the purpose of meeting date change and changing the methods and cost of the plot purchases by Bill Hight, President.The by-laws called for the annual meeting to be held on the last Friday of July at 8 PM. This date has been changed to the first Saturday of October at 10 AM. This should allow those out of the area an opportunity to attend. Also changes in which payments were made and the cost of the gravesites have been changed. Previously, a stock certificate could be purchased for $ 25.00 and a gravesite could be reserved and paid out over time. The new change now requires the full amount of $ 200.00 per site be paid in full, which includes a certificate of stock and the ownership of a site. One must be a stockholder in order to participate in the function of business for the corporation. In 1982, the cemetery became a corporation and is operated as a semi-private cemetery. One must have a prepaid gravesite prior to interment. There are other previous changes as well. One of which requires those making changes to sites must make a request in writing such as for curbing. There is to be no more hi curbs. Prior to any desire to make changes of sites, you must send a request describing the change for Board action. A change made without Board approval may be subject to removal at the expense of the responsible party. We are doing all possible to keep maintenance at a minimum since we have what is determined to be a semi-perpetual care cemetery. You may contact me at 1 325 265 4226, Fax at 325 265 4240 or email at HCHA1@HCTC.NET for information in regard to new requirements. Curbing requirements are posted on the board by the flagpole at the cemetery.
