Town of Herndon Considers Fee Changes for Cemetery, Tennis

The Herndon Town Council will consider increasing fees for indoor tennis programs and cremation at Chestnut Grove Cemetery later this year.

The council will consider a motion to increase fees for cremation at the park cremation garden and ground areas due to an increase in demand for cremation sites.

“While the site fees for the park area were reduced in 2017 due to underperformance, that adjustment achieved the desired result and salves have increased,” wrote Cindy Roeder, the town’s Director of Parks & Recreation. “It is now appropriate to make a modest upward adjustment to those rates to continue to maintain sufficient balance between costs, desirability, and long-term upkeep of the cemetery itself.” 

If approved, fees would increase from $2,195 to $2,700 on July 1. The proposed fee schedule is available online

The council will also consider a $2 increase for all hourly fees for residents and non-residents.

In a memo to the council, Roeder wrote that the increase would help the department “continue to offset all operating and personnel costs.” Fee increases for tennis programs are expected to go into effect in September.

The council meet’s tonight (Tuesday) at 7 p.m. in the Herndon Council Chambers building.
