AGO 1955 NO. 24 > Feb 16 1955

An examination of the books and records of a cemetery authority may be made by the cemetery board without giving notice to the authority prior to making the examination.  The matter of giving notice is a question of policy, to be determined by the board.

AGO 1954 NO. 195 > Feb 1 1954

The Cemetery Board Act, chapter 68.05 RCW, does not violate Art. I, sec. 23, of the constitution, by impairing the obligation of a corporate charter, and since all such charters are granted subject to the possible future exercise of the police power, the act affects all cemetery corporations no matter when incorporated.

AGO 1954 NO. 297 > Aug 12 1954

The cemetery board has no jurisdiction over individual promoters of mausoleums on and for a cemetery owned and operated by a municipality.
