The City Needs Gravediggers, Too
PARD's long, hot summer with interment services
News Story  August 23, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...Austin enjoys uniquely problematic ground conditions, with thin topsoil and thick bedrock. In a July 25 memo, PARD Acting Direc­tor Kimberly McNeeley warned City Council that in the current budget cycle, "The City cannot afford to hire untrained staff to perform interment services who may potentially damage other graves/monuments, which would put the City at risk."

News Story  June 14, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger

When is a parking lot not a parking lot? When it’s next to the beloved park.
News Story  May 31, 2018, by Chase Hoffberger
