Town declines to manage cemetery by Doug McMurdo Gazette staff PAHRUMP- Town manager Scott Neilson presented his findings regarding the feasibil- ity of taking over management of the Chief Tecopa Cemetery from the county. Neilson presented his extensive report to the board during the meeting held Monday, January 27. According to Neilson's evaluation, the town would not benefit from such a move and recommended board members turn down the obligation of managing burials and mainte- nance at the cemetery. The board reviewed Neilson's findings and realized anticipated revenues will not meet expenditures. The four members, minus Chairman Charlotte LeVar, decided to drop the issue and let the county continue their obligation. The cemetery produced $28,500 in rev- enue in 1995, based on 38 burials.

Addi - tional points Neilson dis- cussed with county offi- cials in prepar- ing his report focused on: Training of I personnel; the county would have trained staff relating to cemetery duties. Backhoe; the county would not give the town the backhoe used for the cemetery, but "it could be used when- ever needed." Indigent Burials; the county would continue as required by statute to pay for these burials, however, the town would be required to perform them. Records maintenance; the county would turn over records to the town. Cemetery Advisory Committee; the in- dividuals serving on this committee would be reappointed by the town. Un- finished building at cemetery; the county proposed turning over funds to repair a roof. Approximately $5,000. Cemetery related materials; the county would give the town a riding lawnmower. Memorial or Endowment Fund; the county indi- cated they would be unable to commit money to this type of fund at this time. Of notable interest in Neilson's find- ings: The cost of opening and closing a plot is $650. The fee for setting head- stones and plaques is $100. Total cost is $750. With 1,270 lots available, the cem- etery will be full in 24 years. The town office, already short- handed, would have to take over admin- istration. The Paiute Tribe would like to see signs installed designating the cemetery as The Chief Tecopa Cemetery. Chief Tecopa is a legend in the area for his efforts in living in peace with white settlers, among other things.
