WHEATLAND – The Wheatland VFW Post # 3558 was granted permission by the Town of Wheatland to build a restroom facility at the Wheatland Cemetery.
VFW member Ed Cox of Wheatland said that facilities were needed at the cemetery. The finished building would include water and power, and would be open to the general public.
The organization is applying for grants to fund the project, as well as donations from the community.
Cox added that the VFW plans to design the building with a rock façade that would match the gateway to the cemetery, as well as the future columbarium that is being built on the grounds.
The Town Council unanimously approved the designation of the land for the facilities.
