New cemetery burial option

A new burial option now exists at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery.

The Town has purchased a 40-unit columbarium for funeral urns to be stored, which overlooks Osoyoos Lake and mountain ranges on the lake's northeast side. 

A columbarium is a structure with compartments, designed to hold cremated remains.

The town updated its town cemetery bylaw at their previous council meeting on Jan. 15, changing fees to cover costs for the new structure. 

The internment fee at the cemetery is $1,820, "which includes the license to use and occupy a niche, care fund, inurnment and handling and placing the granite cover plate," according to a report from town staff.

The cemetery is located just north of Osoyoos' border on 176th Avenue but is administered by town staff.
