Salem board mulls maintenance plan for school memorials
The issue of how the district could garner some financial assistance when it comes to the maintenance of the myriad plants, shrubs, trees and other memorials on school property was first raised by board member Pamela Berry last year.
“At Fisk School, for example, the PTA installed a memorial at the corner of Main Street and South Policy Street with quite a hardscape feature and one of the concerns is now maintaining that memorial. Does the school district accept financial responsibility for maintaining it or is there some way to ensure that the donor group accepts responsibility?”
Board member Bernard Campbell noted that his family business addressed the memorial issue by setting up a specified area where people could install a memorial brick. He said that presented a more uniform and simpler process for those wishing to honor someone with a memorial.
