Latest version.
  • (a) The mayor-commissioner and the city clerk are hereby authorized to execute deeds of conveyance on behalf of the city to the purchasers of interment rights in burial spaces within the cemetery, which conveyances shall be valid for all purposes as the act and deed of the city when the city clerk affixes the seal of the city.

    (b) No deed of conveyance shall be executed before the cost of the burial space has been paid in full by the purchaser.

    (c) All deeds of conveyance shall bear a description of the burial space in accordance with the cemetery plats approved by the city commission, the name and address of the purchaser, and the official book and page number in which the conveyance is recorded in the official records of the city.

    (d) All deeds of conveyance are hereby declared to incorporate and shall be subject to all rules, regulations and conditions set forth in this article, and subject, further to such other additional rules and regulations, amendments or alterations as shall be adopted by the city from time to time. The reference to such rules and regulations in deeds conveying the right of interment shall have the same force and effect as if the same were set forth in full therein.

    (e) The deed conveying interment rights to purchasers and the rules and regulations of the city now in force or which may hereafter be adopted, including modifications or amendments thereof, shall be the sole agreement between the city and the purchaser. The statement of any sales agent or employee of the city, unless confirmed in writing by the city manager, shall in no way bind the city.

    (f) A certified copy of the executed deed conveying interment rights shall be filed with the city clerk who shall permanently maintain said copy in the official records of the city.
