Velma cemetery plots going up $100

VELMA — 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.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
