Above-Ground Burial Change Approved For Livingston Parish

New above-ground burial laws are approved in Livingston Parish.

The Parish Council unanimously decided this week to change a law that required above-ground vaults be buried in at least 18 inches of soil.

The change now allows for vaults to be completely unburied but requires that they be sealed and affixed to the ground.
