But cell phone towers are OK. Dan Miller was the no vote, saying that efforts could be better put toward the brown grass and gopher holes.

City Council voted 6-1 to ban those things and other “prohibited objects” from being left at burial sites, niches and crypts, including “solar lights, whirling lawn ornaments” and unapproved vases. “The placement on any burial site of objects other than real or artificial flowers of a reasonable size or flags exceeding 8 inches in length and 12 inches in height is prohibited,” according to the P.G. Municipal Code, “and, if so placed, the city may remove and dispose of them at its discretion.”
