Proposed Regulation – Cemetery Board

​ ​​​

NEWARK – The Cemetery Board has proposed amendments to regulations governing deposits to a cemetery company’s Maintenance and Preservation Fund.

The proposed amendments recognize that deposits to a Maintenance and Preservation Fund are not required if an entity which owns an interment space allows a burial in that space without transferring title, the space was purchased after December 1, 1971, and a fee was paid into the Maintenance and Preservation Fund at the time space was sold to that entity. 

The proposed amendments and information on how to submit a comment by October 18, 2019, can be viewed on the Division of Consumer Affairs’ website here.
