Bringing it home to the township

At the November 15th South Dundas council meeting, Clerk Brenda Brunt recommended that council “authorize the transfer of the Care and Maintenance Funds from the Public Trustee and act as the Trustee of that fund for the Williamsburg Community Cemetery Board (WCCB).”

Councillor Archie Mellan who confirmed that he sits on the WCCB said, “it’s something they’ve been looking at for a number of years. They thought it would be beneficial to bring it home to the township.”

According to Brunt, “the principal and interest earned through investments are a separated entity of the Township and has no budget implications to the Township.”

“The Township is acting as a Public Trustee to the fund to maintain the requirements under the Cemetery Act and provide financial guidance to allow the fund to continually grow.”
