CEMETERIES.

L. 1847, ch. 133, § 10 (C. & G.'s General Laws, p. 529), as amended by L. 1877, ch. 31, amended by L. 1904, ch. 237, in effect April 6, 1904, as follows:

§ 10. Exemption of certain cemetery property.— The cemetery lands and property of any association formed pursuant to this act, and any property held in trust by it for any of the purposes mentioned in section nine of this act, shall be exempt from all public taxes, rates and assessments, and shall not be liable to be sold on execution, or be applied in payment of debts due from any individual proprietor. But the proprietors of lots or plots in such cemeteries, their heirs or devisees, may hold the same exempt therefrom, so long as the same shall remain dedicated to the purposes of a cemetery, and during that time no street, road, avenue or public thoroughfare shall be laid out through such cemetery, or any part of the lands held by such association for the purposes aforesaid, without the consent of the trustees of such association, and of two-thirds of the lot owners thereof, and then only by special permission of the legislature of the state. (Amended by L. 1877, ch. 31, and L. 1904, ch. 237, in effect April 6, 1904.)

Exemption does not include municipal water rights.- Water rights assessed against cemetery property by a municipal corporation are not public assessments within the meaning of this section, but partake of the nature of assessments for local improvements notwithstanding that they are levied annually and that they do not represent the cost of construction and maintenance of the particular pipe and supply therein in front of the premises in question.
