Possible Oak Ridge Cemetery Privatization Laid to Rest by Houston


The idea of turning control of Oak Ridge Cemetery over to a private company appears to be dead and buried.

 

Mayor Mike Houston issued a statement Monday saying he was dropping the idea because of aldermanic opposition.

 

Houston said he began looking at privatization because aldermen had directed him to find a way to reduce the city’s $400,000 annual subsidy for cemetery operations.

 

Now the mayor says the city will have to get used to taking that amount out of the budget each year in order to help Oak Ridge make ends meet.
