Aurora Seeks To Ban Backyard Burials

AURORA, Colo. (AP) – The Aurora City Council is considering a ban on backyard burials.

Colorado law allows burials almost anywhere in the state as long as it’s not on federal land.

The council wants to limit burials to cemeteries.

City Councilwoman Renie Peterson says people could tie up city resources if they find a body and call police.

Peterson says there have been no complaints, but she wants to avoid problems in the future.
