  • § 5577. Mausoleum becoming untenable

    If, in the opinion of the state board of health, a mausoleum, vault, crypt, or structure containing one or more deceased human bodies becomes a menace to public health, and the owner or owners thereof fail to remedy or remove the same to the satisfaction of the state board of health, a court of competent jurisdiction may order the person, firm, or corporation owning such structure to remove the body or bodies for interment in some suitable cemetery at the expense of the person, firm, or corporation owning such mausoleum, vault, or crypt. When such person, firm, or corporation can not be found in the county where such mausoleum, vault, or crypt is located, then such removal and interment shall be at the expense of the cemetery or cemetery association, city or town where such mausoleum, vault, or crypt is situated.
