The yearly clean-up of Pocatello’s two City operated cemeteries has been scheduled for next month.
Beginning April 3, crews will begin the process of removing and discarding decorations and flower placements that have been left on graves at Restlawn Cemetery and Mountain View Cemetery. Residents who have left decorations on graves and would like to keep them from being discarded are asked to retrieve them before April 3. The process of cleaning the cemeteries takes about a month and once the clean-up is finished, the decorations can be placed back on the graves.
“We want to make sure Pocatello’s cemeteries serve as worthy resting places for our friends and loved ones,” said Martin Peace, Cemetery Sexton “The clean-up helps us to keep the cemeteries as pristine as possible.”
If you have questions about the clean-up, contact the cemetery office at 208-234-6195.
