KAYSVILLE -- The city cemetery will have available plots for many years to come, according to a member of the city council.

At a recent city council meeting, Councilman Gil Miller stated that ever since the council raised rates and changed regulations for nonresident interments, the rate of purchase by nonresidents has significantly decreased.

According to Miller, since the opening of the new section of the cemetery in 2011, 252 spaces have been sold — only 19 of those were to nonresidents.

Miller estimated that the cemetery should last a couple of decades before more land would need to be acquired.
