CORNING, Calif. - The Corning Cemetery District is responding to a story Action News Now ran last week about a social media post claiming that someone was removing items left on gravesites.
The operators of the cemetery say they have simple rules in place including no porcelain or glass items on graves, no items above 18 inches and items that fall off onto the grass next to the graves.
All items that they collect are stored so that people can get them back or make modifications so they can be in compliance with rules.
“We don't take anything off of the headstones unless they are non-compliant. They can always talk to the office staff and if they are not satisfied with that the office staff will call me in,” said Dean Cofer, chairman board of trustees.
The cemetery’s rules are posted and management also says they are always available to work with people who questions or concerns.
