Oak Ridge Cemetery Expenses Will be Covered


Springfield IL – Aldermen in Springfield have agreed to spend 380 thousand dollars to cover expenses at Oak Ridge Cemetery for the rest of the fiscal year.


Earlier in October, Aldermen heard a proposal to subsidize the cemetery with city funds. Last night the Aldermen approved the proposal nine to one.


The director said he plans to find other ways to raise money for the cemetery, which is home to Abraham Lincoln's tomb.
