[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Grafton as Title 13, Ch. 13.20, of the 1979 Code; amended in its entirety by Ord. No. 024, Series 2004. Subsequent amendments noted where applicable.]
The Village Board shall from time to time fix a schedule of prices for all lots sold in municipal cemeteries and for all work done for private parties by the Superintendent and his assistants, including charges to be made for the use of any public vault. Fifty percent of the funds so derived shall be credited to the perpetual care trust fund and shall be considered a full payment by the purchaser of the lot by the Village in perpetuity.
The sale of lots in municipal cemeteries shall be under the control of the Cemetery Superintendent subject to the rules and regulations and the general supervision of the Village Board. Any applicant shall apply to the Cemetery Superintendent and select from those lots available for sale the lot which he desires to buy. Upon full payment, the Cemetery Superintendent shall issue a deed to the lot in the form prescribed by the Village Attorney. The deed shall be signed by the Cemetery Superintendent and Village President and acknowledged so as to entitle it to be recorded. The purchaser may record this deed with the County Register of Deeds.
The transfer in accordance with applicable Wisconsin Statutes of lots previously sold may be registered, after payment of a transfer fee of $20 with the Cemetery Superintendent, by presentation of the original deed on the back of which is written "I hereby transfer to (name of the owner) (portions of the lot)" and the endorsement of the original lot owner or by presenting a court order evidencing transfer. This would have to be acknowledged and witnessed if it is desired to record the transfer with the Register of Deeds.
