Adams Will Need Funds To Purchase Cemetery Shed
The Cemetery Commission in Adams may dip into its Perpetual Care Fund to purchase a shed for Bellevue Cemetery.
IBerkshires.com reports that Commissioner Bruce Shepley told the commissioners Wednesday that although they may have found a proper storage shed to meet cold storage needs at Bellevue Cemetery, actually purchasing it may be a problem.
The project was initiated after the commission agreed that a dilapidated shed used for cold storage needed to be knocked down. Doing so, however, would lead to less storage at the cemetery.
The commission looked at building completely new or adding on to a standing garage. The commission ultimately decided to run down its cemetery fund and expend approximately $100,000 to make repairs to the garage.
