A flat fee of $400 per lot at East End Cemetery – a change from the current rate of $200 for city residents and $400 for non-residents – will take effect on Sunday, July 1.

The Cadiz City Council unanimously decided to make that change when it met last Tuesday evening, at the request of Cadiz City Council member Susan Bryant, who brought up the issue during the council comments portion of the meeting.

“I hadn’t thought about it as much until I realized that a … good number of people inside the city would buy lots for people outside the city,” said Bryant. “And then there would be some confusion.”

“There’s a tremendous amount of confusion … where somebody from the city buys a lot for somebody that lives in Mississippi,” said Cadiz Public Works Director Kerry Fowler.

Bryant said the new rate is still lower than normal for cemetery plots.

Also during the council comments portion, Bryant said she has received complaints from five people – two who left anonymous complaints and three who didn’t want their names publicized – about Cadiz Hardware’s rose bushes blocking the view from Lakota Drive onto Main Street at the stoplight.
