Sale of cemeteries owned by a locality; notice to descendants. Provides that no cemetery owned by a county or city shall be sold to a private owner unless the county or city has made a good faith effort to ensure, prior to sale, that the ownership of such cemetery is vested in the estate of the last owner of record or that permission for the sale has been granted by the family members or descendants of such owner. The bill describes a good faith effort as an attempt by the county or city to contact all known family members and descendants of the last owner of record no less than three separate times by phone, mail, or visiting the last known address of record for such family members or descendants. The bill requires a county or city to keep written records of each attempt to contact a family member or descendant. Read the Bill »
