Under Ohio Revised Code 517.11  - Care of cemetery

The Board of Township Trustees shall provide for the protection

and preservation of cemeteries under its jurisdiction

 

The Board of Trustees of Colerain Township has budgeted funds for restoration of 11 of the 29 historic cemeteries located in the township.

2020, Dunlap Station and Foster Cemeteries were completed.

2021 will see work on Compton, Huston and

White Oak Christian Cemeteries.

 

While the Township must focus efforts on gravestone restoration and groundskeeping; much work still needs to be completed annually on gravestone cleaning, landscaping and trimming at all of the cemeteries.
