For the first time in years, Oak Ridge Cemetery has dollars to cover it's operations for the rest of the fiscal year without having to dip into two their endowment funds.

 

The Springfield City Council voted to give the site where Abraham Lincoln is buried money from the city’s corporate fund.

 

Springfield Budget Director Bill McCarty says that for as far as he can tell the cemetery has been operating by taking up to a million dollars over a handfull of years from funds set up to continue care for the grounds long after it there are no more plots available to sell.

 

Aldermen passed the measure 9-1 with Ward 1’s Frank Edwards as the only no vote.
