Elgin Latin Cemetery Rules

Rules and Procedures

Every organization has rules, procedures, and customs that need to be adhered to in order for that entity to function in a satisfactory manner. The Elgin Latin Cemetery is no different and has many rules and by- laws that have been enacted and implemented because of necessity. The following list of rules is not comprehensive but these are some rules that are some of the most important for members of the Association. 1. No construction of any kind is permitted without the express approval of one of the Directors of the Cemetery. Any violation of this rule may result in the removal of the construction, either by the Member Owner or the Cemetery. There are signs posted in various locations of the Cemetery that display this rule. 2. Hours of operation will be strictly adhered to. Anyone that disregards these hours or requests to leave may result in the summoning of law enforcement. Signs in the Cemetery have the hours posted on them. 3. The directors serve in a voluntary manner. There are no funds collected from the Members to clean the Member plots so it is up to each Member Owner to clean their own family and individual spaces. There are state laws that authorize a Cemetery to clean these spaces and to collect fees for the necessary cleaning of these graves. 4. Purchasers of grave spaces in the Elgin Latin Cemetery do not own the land but only have the right to bury persons in those grave spaces. The Cemetery retains the ownership of all the property in the Cemetery. This is the reason that the Cemetery Association can impose rules to govern the Cemetery. 5. Decorations, ornaments, and flowers are allowed to be placed on graves. It is the responsibility of the Member Owner to collect these items once they become broken or faded. The Cemetery may pick these up without notification of the Owner. 6. The Elgin Latin Cemetery Association has final say and authority on any event in the Cemetery.
