The Cemetery Commission has full charge and responsibility for the care and maintenance of the town’s cemeteries. It establishes the policies, rules and regulations for operation of the cemeteries; sets prices for services provided; lays out lots, drives and paths; and recommends to the Selectboard prices for burial lots.
The five members are appointed by the Selectboard to 5-year terms, so one term expires every year. Members may be re-appointed. Emails and letters of interest in serving on the Commission are accepted at the Town Manager’s Office from late April through mid-May.
The Sexton (the working cemetery supervisor) attends meetings and informs the Commission of operational matters. To leave a message for the Cemetery Commission, email firstname.lastname@example.org. For information about Barre Town’s cemeteries, see the Cemetery page. For the next Cemetery Commission meeting, please see the town calendar.
