A Memorial/Cemetery District is a publicly elected board that is elected to manage a historical memorial or a public cemetery. A public memorial district might be a park that has a monument or plaque to honor U.S. service members who have died in combat. A public cemetery is one used by the general community and although it may have some stipulations, it can be used widely by the public. The board’s responsibility usually entails overseeing the expenses necessary for upkeep of the district and coordinating with local or regional government to accomplish their duties.
