Mayor Seeks Additional $60K for Oak Ridge Cemetery Operations in Current Fiscal Year


Financial problems at Springfield’s Oak Ridge Cemetery appear to be getting worse instead of better.

 

Mayor Mike Houston is seeking emergency passage for an ordinance to pump another $60,000 from the city’s general fund to support Oak Ridge operations through the end of the fiscal year on February 28th.

 

That’s on top of the $400,000 that had already been budgeted to fill in gaps in the cemetery’s budget.

 

City officials say sales at Oak Ridge have dropped off sharply during the harsh winter months.
