The tower was built in 1876, using sandstone from local quarries. Inside the names of 463 soldiers are carved in marble slabs. A spiral staircase leads to the top of the 68-foot-high tower, which is part of a cemetery listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Mayor Dean Theodorakos and Deputy Mayor Kevin Sheehan finished their term of office with the Village Board on March 31, 2014. We want to thank Dean and Kevin for their service to the Village and wish them well.

 

A tentative 2014-2015 Village budget was presented at a public hearing on March 26, 2014. Total proposed spending for all Village operations is $6.6 million. Amount to be raised by real property tax levy is 2.6 million (increase of 9%). Our current tax base is down 2.7 million from the previous year. Final budget will be adopted by the end of April. In the meantime we will continue to look for opportunities to reduce spending.

Reminder to all residents owning or tending to grave sites at Mount Albion Cemetery. Christmas wreathes, grave blankets and all other seasonal decorations should be removed from grave sites by April 15 or by when it becomes necessary to facilitate cemetery operations such as mowing. Mount Albion Cemetery does not allow adornments that are offensive or inconsistent with the dignity of the cemetery. The practice of placing numerous objects on grave sites adversely impacts the area, impedes proper lawn maintenance and significantly increases time and labor costs. These items can also pose a serious hazard to grounds personnel as they can become entangled in mowers and other power equipment. Grave owners are encouraged to assist cemetery staff by removing such objects as soon as practical. Mount Albion Cemetery assumes no responsibility for the loss or damage to any object or article left upon any grave in the cemetery. Artificial flowers and potted plants are always permitted and may be placed on graves at any time throughout the year. If you have any questions regarding compliance issues, please contact the Cemetery Office during normal business hours. Thank you for your cooperation.

 

Our next newsLetter will be in July.
