Brookfield Township has begun selling cremation niches in the columbarium in Brookfield Township Cemetery.
The cost of a niche depends on its location within the above-ground, six-level burial vessel.
Resident pricing runs from $1,600 to $2,000. Two niches can be bought at a time, at a cost of $2,600 to $3,000.
Nonresident prices are $2,100 to $2,500 for single niche purchases, and $3,100 to $3,500 for two-niche purchases.
“It includes the opening and closing (costs),” Trustee Dan Suttles said of the pricing structure. “Those are added expenses when you have a (in-ground) burial. Once you pay the price up front, you’re good to go from whenever the time is for you to be interred. I think that’s important.”
The trustees, who approved selling the niches Feb. 7, also awarded a contract to Sollberger Stone Industries of Vienna to blast the name plates on the niches at $150 per niche for three years. That cost is rolled into the niche purchase price.
