If your future plans include a burial in Velma, it will cost you $100 more on July 1.
Because of increased maintenance costs, the Velma Town Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to increase the price of a city cemetery plot from $200 to $300.
The increase won’t take effect until the town begins its new fiscal year on July 1, said Mayor Shawn Enloe.
The increased price is the standard cost of a burial plot in nearby small towns in Stephens County, Enloe said, and remains more moderately priced than a burial plot in Duncan.
