Prior to March 5, 2019, care and management of the town’s cemeteries fell to the Cemetery Commission with five members elected to five-year terms, one term expiring each year. Annual activities included the cleaning and repair of broken stones, fence repair, painting, mowing, and signage. At 2019 Town Meeting voters returned care of cemeteries to the Selectboard. On March 18, 2019 the Selectboard creates a Cemetery Committee, made up of four of the former Cemetery Commissioners and one newcomer. The new committee will handle the same activities as the commission once did.
