Ector County Cemetery Rules for Placing Flowers
CBS 7 News
We've seen many of your comments about flowers getting picked up in cemeteries in Odessa. CBS 7 decided to figure who might be removing flowers off of your loved ones graves.
One cemetery employee tells us at the first of every month, maintenance performs a cleanup, and any flowers not places in specific vases on the gravestone will be picked up. In addition to that cleanup, all Christmas decoration had to be removed by January 28th.
Ector County Judge Susan Redford says they do these cleanups in order to keep the graveyard aesthetically pleasing for visitors.
