As you have been advised, all flowers at Ridgewood Cemetery were to be removed by March 15. This includes anything that is not on the monument. City crews will be removing any artificial flowers and wreaths that are stuck in the ground before we begin to mow. If you place flowers or solar lights on the grave site, they must be right up against the stone or marker. They can not be in the line of mowers. Even if they are placed up against the stone or marker, we still cannot be responsible when it comes to weed eating. The only time we will remove anything from the monument is when it looks ratty. We ask that you remove flowers two weeks after Memorial Day.
