Each fall, the City’s past, and current practice is to utilize the Department of Public Services (DPS) staff to turn over all urns at Oakwood Cemetery. This is done as a courtesy to help ensure the privately purchased concrete and granite urns do not crack during the freeze and thaw of winter and spring.
Each spring, family members or friends who want to utilize the urns can turn them over as they wish. If assistance is needed to help turn over an urn, please reach out to City Hall to make that request. DPS crews will honor these formal requests within one business day unless unplanned, extenuating circumstances arise.
Please note, DPS does not turn all of the urns over each spring as any that remain empty collect water and create a breeding ground for mosquitos.
To request assistance with having an urn turned over during the months of May through September, please call 517-627-2149 or stop by City Hall, 310 Greenwood Street, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.
