The rules are for the protection of the
Cemetery, the lot owners as a whole, and for individual lot owners.
The Superintendent is authorized to make temporary additional rules.
For the mutual protection of lot owners
and the Cemetery as a whole, the following rules and regulations have been
adopted by the GREENWOOD CEMETERY BOARD as the rules and regulations of
GREENWOOD CEMETERY and all lot owners and visitors within the Cemetery and all
lots sold, shall be subject to said rules and regulations. And subject further, to such other rules and
regulations, amendments or alterations as shall be adopted by the CEMETERY BOARD.
It is the duty of the Superintendent to
see that the rules and regulations are complied with and it is his duty to see
that the order is maintained and to protect and promote the best interests of
the Cemetery. To that end, he is
authorized to make temporary additional rules which may be needed, from time to
time, to meet emergencies which are not covered by these Rules and Regulations.
The Cemetery reserves the right to make temporary exceptions to the rules.
Special cases may arise in which the
literal enforcement of a rule may impose unnecessary hardship. The Cemetery, therefore, reserves the right
to make exceptions, suspensions or modifications of any of these Rules and
Regulations when in the judgment of the Management such action appears
necessary; and such temporary exception, suspension or modification shall in no
way be construed as affecting the general application of such Rules and
The statement by any employee does not obligate the Cemetery.
The instrument of these Rules and
Regulations and any amendments thereto constitute the sole agreement between
the Cemetery and the lot owner. The
statement of any employee or agent, unless confirmed in writing by the
Management, shall in no way bind the Cemetery.
The Superintendent is authorized to enforce all rules and has charge of the property and buildings.
The Management is hereby empowered to
enforce all Rules and Regulations and to exclude from the Cemetery any person
violating the same. The Management shall
have charge of the grounds and buildings, including the conduct of funerals,
traffic, employees, lot owners and visitors and at all times shall have
supervision and control of all persons in the Cemetery.
