Guam - The Vicente Limtiaco Cemetery in Nimitz Hill has reached its maximum capacity, resulting in the Department of Parks and Recreation placing a moratorium on most burials there. Agency director Pete Calvo says available space on the property has been maxed out at the public cemetery and only requests for infants and those wanting to be buried in plots already occupied by a loved one are being accepted.
Calvo told KUAM News, "In consulting with DOC for assistance they were able to provide us support for heavy equipment to clear the slope lower so that we can see what usable properties we have as well as provide us access, DPW will then come in with coral to help us prepare the road for access."
Calvo says the department will begin reissuing permits for burials if extra property is identified.
