Enderby hikes cemetery fees

It’s going to cost more to use Enderby’s Cliffside cemetery.

City council has given three readings to the cemetery regulations bylaw, including fees.

“They are going up to reflect costs,” said Mayor Howie Cyr.

Total fees for a resident adult lot will be $353 starting Jan. 1, 2013 and that will climb to $429 in 2017. The total fee for resident cremated remains will be $171 in 2013 and $208 in 2017.

Fees will also climb for internment services (opening and closing), exhumation and supplies like grave liners and cremation vaults.

Cultural support grows

Enderby taxpayers are getting behind culture.

City council has decided to provide a $500 grant to the 2013 Enderby Arts Festival.

“The festival has the largest outdoors artisans market in the Okanagan with 45 vendors,” said Neil Fidler, Enderby Arts Festival chairperson.

“The festival is a unique opportunity to showcase Enderby, its rich arts and culture, hospitality and natural beauty.”

The anticipated cost of the 2013 festival is $5,000, The arts council funds 60 per cent and 40 per cent comes from outside sources and local sponsors.

The 2013 Enderby Arts Festival is scheduled for July 27.
