North Judson Town Board Approves Quote for Highland Cemetery Signs

Highland Cemetery in North Judson will soon be sporting some new signs, as the town board this week signed off on a quote of $860 for two new signs, one of which will be posted at the main entrance while a smaller sign will be posted at the secondary entrance. Clerk-Treasurer Donna Henry explained the larger sign will highlight the recently amended cemetery rules and regulations; the smaller sign, she said, will direct visitors to the main entrance sign.

Henry said the sign replacement is necessary because the previous sign, which was made out of wood, had disintegrated over the years.

Henry also said the board approved the rules and regulations amendment on its second and third readings. She said the amendment clarifies what flags are prohibited: marking flags are not allowed, but American flags or other decorative flags are allowed within 12 inches of the foundation. Henry said the cemetery was having an issue with some visitors placing small marking flags around graves, preventing the grass from being mowed.
