SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — The City of San Marcos is considering increasing its fees for utilizing its cemetery.
According to city council agenda notes, the San Marcos Cemetery Commission is recommending the Perpetual Care Fund (the fund that is used to maintain the cemetery in San Marcos) to be dissolved and have fees structured differently.
The city says the reason for this is that it recently purchased 4.2 acres of land to expand the current cemetery. In doing so, the Perpetual Care Fund was depleted for the purchase of the land.
If the fee changes are approved, plot owners could see a $50-a-year increase for the cost of their plot.
The suggestion is on the agenda for the next city council meeting on April 16.
