Columbus Looking To Install Digital Cemetary Directory
Posted: 14 June, 2013
COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - Officials in Columbus are moving ahead with an effort to ease the search for gravesites at a city-owned cemetery.
The city's cemetery board on Wednesday unanimously supported buying a digital directory that stores burial plot information. The board recommends the city spend up to $30,000 to buy a digital directory and place it in a kiosk at Columbus Cemetery. If that effort is a success, the board could propose another one at Roselawn Cemetery. The money would come from local sales tax revenue. The Columbus City Council will need to approve the project before it moves forward.
