Policy for Indigent Burial / Cremation
The purpose of this policy is to ensure compliance with Ohio Revised Code section 9.15(C) which mandates that a township must bury or cremate a body at the township's expense when the body is claimed by an indigent person. R.C 9.15(C) defined an indigent person as someone whose income does not exceed 150% of the federal poverty line when adjusted to the correct family size.
