Council to discuss Garden Memorial Building at Marco Cemetery

The Church of God where the early settlers on Marco worshipped.

The Church of God where the early settlers on Marco worshipped.

This Monday’s City Council Meeting Agenda includes discussion of a new mausoleum at the Marco Island Cemetery. Clayton Lietz has worked diligently for several years to have above ground burial at the Marco Cemetery with a new beautiful garden memorial building. The new building would be twelve feet high and would house 100 caskets with niches for cremation urns.

The original building of worship for the original settlers on Marco–the Church of God– is situated at the cemetery. Many of the earliest inhabitants of Marco are buried in the cemetery. At the meeting, Marco City Council will discuss making the cemetery an official historical site.  The cemetery is deeded to the New Life Community Church who maintain the grounds.

If you would like a chance to voice your opinion regarding an above ground burial building at the Marco Cemetery, plan to attend the meeting Monday. If you have questions, please contact Clayton Lietz at 394-7080.
