Guam - The Department of Parks and Recreation is lifting the moratorium on burials at the island's only public cemetery. DPR director Pete Calvo says his agency identified a significant amount of property in the Vicente Limtiaco Cemetery in Nimitz Hill in Piti to begin burials this Saturday.

He adds they are working on a long-term plan to erect crypts to extend the lifespan of the hallowed grounds. The cemetery for the past few months were only taking burial permits for infants and those wanting to be buried in the same plot as their loved one.
