With some of Toledo’s city-owned cemeteries filling up and its finances quickly dwindling, the Bell administration Tuesday plans to propose cremating dead indigent people rather than burying their bodies.
Dennis Garvin, the city’s commissioner of parks and forestry, said the change would save money.
“It’s not a new idea and it is something that had been bandied about and first proposed by the cemetery commission 12 years ago,” Mr. Garvin said. “What happened since then is the cemetery is pretty well filled up.”
