La Grande Cemetery Maintenance District is a member of the Special District’s Association of Oregon. The District consists of four cemeteries: Ackles, Grandview, Hillcrest and Hillcrest East. The cemeteries and office have year round perpetual care and are maintained by two full-time employees and two seasonal employees: District Manager, Sue Anderson; Field Supervisor, Matt Rainwater; Field Maintenance, Crayson McBride and Sam Fiorito. The District has a governing Board of Directors: Toney Hamilton, Chairman; Les Warner, Secretary; and Marilyn Fallow, Treasurer. The board meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 8:00 a.m., at the District Office, 401 12th Street, La Grande. You may pick up the meeting agenda, at the cemetery office, one week prior to each meeting. The public is invited to attend.
