While working with Treasurer Seamon to file the annual update document with the State Comptroller’s office, Trustee Carter learned of the (John) Tisdale Trust of $4000 for Lakeview Cemetery plot adornment that former Cemetery Commission provided. Since the dissolution of the commission such care has not been performed and, as a result, it’s deemed unfair for the Board to hold the funds.
