With the recent Memorial Day weekend, the City of Cedar Falls would like to issue a reminder to the public on decorating ordinances for our area cemeteries.

The goal of the City Parks staff is to provide a well-maintained final resting place for families and avoid damaging any personal items.
If you have any additional questions regarding gravestone decorations, please email Chase Schrage, Cedar Falls Public Works Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
