It makes interesting reading. Although the booklet bears no date or authorship, the language suggests that it was written rather a long time ago. (There is one reference to a $50 fee for "perpetual care" of coping around individual graves.) Here are two items of prohibition from the booklet:
No vehicle shall be driven through the grounds at a speed exceeding twelve miles per hour. No bicycles nor tricycles will be allowed within the grounds. No bicycling within grounds. Includes tricycles, motor bikes and childrens' [sic] riding equipment.
Persons with firearms shall not be permitted to enter the grounds except on occasions of military funerals and on Memorial Day.That bit about firearms calls to mind what happened last year when the Common Council tried to ban firearms from municipal buildings and city parks.
Too bad dog owners don't seem to wield the same clout with city government as gun owners.
