For the purpose of preventing profiteering in dealing in cemetery lots, it is hereby declared to be necessary that certain restrictions be placed upon the resale of lots. No person shall have a right to sell or otherwise dispose of any burial lot or lots, or any additions thereto, to any person without first offering in writing the lot or lots to the city at the same price at which the lot or lots were first acquired from the city. The city shall have the right to purchase the lot or lots at the price for which the lot or lots were originally sold and shall within 30 days after the lot or lots are offered to the city either purchase the lot or lots or reject the offer. (Ord. 294, Sec. 5)
