Memorial Day weekend is a busy time at the Bristol Road cemetery, which is owned by the township. That means a water supply needs to be on tap for visitors to water plants and tend to their plots. As the holiday approached, Assistant Fire Chief Mike Burkley informed Clerk Kim Courts that he had completed her request to fill the water tanks located at the cemetery to accommodate Memorial Day visitors. The water tanks were installed in 2011 as a solution to a problem caused by cemetery visitors getting water from a spigot at a gas station next door, which lead to high water bills. The gas station owner shut off the faucet after the township declined to help pay for the water bills. Township officials placed the water tanks at the cemetery to be filled by the fire department, as needed during warmer months.
