The following is a news release from the City of Lubbock:
The City is asking citizens to remove decorations from memorials at the City of Lubbock Cemetery by the end of the month, as part of its annual clean-up ahead of the first mowing.
Visitors can leave flowers in memorial vases, but all other decorations need to be removed. Objects left will be removed and disposed of starting May 5. Objects left over a period of time become unsightly, and City staff must remove objects that impede mowing and trimming the Cemetery.
