ROSEVILLE, Placer Co., April 26–The Roseville Odd Fellows Lodge ha transferred ownership of the Odd Fellows Cemetery to the Roseville Public Cemetery District. Leonard M. Layton, chairman of the cemetery district board of trustees, said the transaction was completed yesterday with approximately $8,500 in county funds involved. Layton explained the transfer was the result of public desire for better maintenance which can be accomplished by public funds rather than by a private organization.
Plans call for immediate beautification of the ground, expected to be finished before Memorial Day, new roads, lawns and additional sprinkler systems. The trustees, who include City Councilmen Joseph Colnar and James W. Ford, will urge county prisoners be assigned to do the work with county equipment.
