Aldermen Debate Subsidy For Oak Ridge Cemetery


Springfield Aldermen may subsidise the struggling, yet nationally historic, Oak Ridge Cemetery with an ordinance placed on the debate agenda for possible passage next week.

 

The $380,000 allocation from the corporate fund will go towards the rest of the cemetery’s fiscal year.

 

Budget Director Bill McCarty says the administration will no longer allow the cemetery to dip into its enterprise funds, something the past administrations allowed to happen, to make up for declining revenue.

 

McCarty also says that this may be the first step of eventually folding the cemetery’s financial position into the city’s corporate fund.

 

If the funds are not available, that means that payroll may not be met for cemetery employees.

 

Aldermen will debate the ordinance further next week before possibly passage.
