Aurora seeks a ban on backyard burials

AURORA, Colo. (AP) - The Aurora City Council is considering a ban on backyard burials.

Colorado law allows burials almost anywhere in the state as long as it's not on federal land.

According to KMGH-TV, the council wants to limit burials to cemeteries.

City Councilwoman Renie Peterson says people could tie up city resources if they find a body and call police.

Peterson says there have been no complaints, but she wants to avoid problems in the future.
