Effort To Rehabilitate Oakland Cemetery Has Finally Begun

June 21, 2013

Thanks to the citizen’s approval of a recent bond issue, our Mayor, the Shreveport City Council, the Friends of Oakland, and the Families of Oakland organizations, the effort to rehabilitate Oakland Cemetery has finally begun.

In June a contract was awarded to CERTONTEC, LLC to begin work in the cemetery.

A groundbreaking event was held at the entrance of the cemetery on February 3, 2013. The Mayor, Councilman Jeff Everson, Ms. Shelly Ragle- SPAR, and our board member, Mr. Steve Smith spoke about the importance of the cemetery and the work to be done.
