Peoria's historic cemetery works for more revenue
Bob Manning chairs the Cemetery Management Authority. He says they’re hopeful to replenish the fund and eliminate the need for the intergovernmental supplements.
“But that’s a tall order it’s going to be several years, probably if we ever get there. So in the meantime, we’re trying to do the best we can to keep Springdale up to its grand standards, while maintaining our expenses to a minimal but we need to drive more revenues.”
Springdale will run about 50-thousand dollars over its basic county, park district and city funding in addition to its current revenues. The city of Peoria picks-up that over-run.
