cemetery1Operation and maintenance of the cemetery is the duty of the City of Yankton Parks and Recreation Department. Partial operation and maintenance costs for the cemetery are paid for with interest earned by the perpetual care fund and revenues produced from sale of plots, opening and closing of graves, and other services. Annually, the City provides a supplement from the General Fund to meet ongoing operational costs. The cemetery staff assists the public with choosing burial locations, providing a well-maintained setting for interments, and keeping all cemetery records.

The burial records have been transferred from hand-written paper records into a computer database, an updated map with viewer to search for burial locations has been created, and photos of all headstones are a part of the electronic database.
