Election Day is quickly approaching and Lisbon residents will be asked to show their support for a very important issue that affects almost everyone in the community. The Lisbon Cemetery Board has a three-mill renewal issue on the ballot. A yes vote will be very much appreciated and will not be a vote to raise taxes.
As residents of the community for more than 40 years, we plan to make the cemetery in Lisbon our last resting place. Many of you likewise may have already made that decision. Some may be doing so in the future. Others go to the cemetery on a regular basis to pay their respects to friends and relatives who are buried there. Regardless of the reason that we may find ourselves there, one thing I think all of us would be in agreement on is the meticulous manner in which our cemetery is maintained and cared for.
Since most of our family comes from outside the Lisbon area, we get a chance to visit other cemeteries on a regular basis. The preservation of the grounds and serene beauty of the site are second to none in the Tri-State area. The Lisbon Cemetery Board and their staff and employees should be commended for the tremendous job that they do to conserve the setting. Their work is accomplished on an extremely tight budget.
In order to ensure the continuation of the services being provided, they along with all of us in the community need your help and support. Vote yes on Election Day for the three-mill Lisbon Cemetery renewal.
