The Department of the City of Totana Cemetery has, at present, a waiting list to purchase a cemetery, niche or grave in the Municipal Cemetery "Nuestra SeŮora del Carmen", according to the mayor of the branch, Victor Balsas.
The councilor explained that the intention of his department is "slowly" trying to go responding to existing demands and attributed to no economic resources and lack of space left in the cemetery for new construction the main reasons for this situation.
In any case, the municipal officers are already working on expanding the municipal cemetery, although the number of new buildings is yet to be determined.

Another concern in this area of ‚Äč‚Äčmunicipal management is that the service is deficient, ie, that tanks are built above the number sold, as is happening today.
