PCCFF donates to Grant Cemetery Board

The Perkins County Community Foundation Fund donated $2,000 to the Grant Cemetery Board to assist in the cost of an information kiosk for Fairview cemetery. According to City Superintendent Edward Dunn, “The company that we are looking at doing business with is Windy Prairie Systems based out of Indianola, Nebraska.  They have a terrific rapport with several of the communities surrounding Grant.  They offer a Digital Touchscreen Kiosk that is able to stand alone with no protection needed from the elements.  This system would allow users to quickly type in a name and find the location of a loved one with a map showing the way and other information as provided by the family of the deceased that they are there to visit.  Not only would this decrease the amount of time it takes to find someone it would also allow the City to update records overnight as the system would run on a cellular network.  As stated above this unit is able to withstand the terrors of mother nature with no protection needed, with a tough metal shell, high glare touchscreen, cooling unit for hot summer months, heating system for cold winter nights, and battery backup system in the event of power loss.  The Cemetery Board will be taking donations made payable to the City of Grant at Pinnacle Bank or at the City Office.  The total cost for the unit including mapping of the cemetery, uploading the current directory, and annual maintenance is approximately $25,000.00 to $30,000.”
