Restored cemetery gates

In 2014, the Claremont City Council authorized the department of public works (DPW) to seek grant funding to restore vintage, American-crafted, wrought-iron gates that once stood at the entrance of Mountain View Cemetery. Initiated by DPW employee Norma Limoges, the $3,600 restoration project was funded with grants and gifts from local organizations, and successfully completed this August.

The entrance that was there was just fine. There are two entrances at the other cemetery that are ready to fall over, one is an accident and lawsuit waiting to happen. But this is Claremont, we will replace the one that doesn't need it and wait for the others to fall over. Same thing we do with our roads - pave the ones that don't need it first.
