Section 517.26 | Removal of dead.


When remains laid in a vault or other receptacle become offensive, on the complaint of a householder of the township, the board of township trustees immediately shall issue an order to the sexton or other person in charge of the vault or receptacle to have the remains immediately interred. If the interment is neglected for three days after the complaint, any judge of the county court within the county may issue a written order to a householder of the township to inter the remains at the expense of the board and shall allow a reasonable charge for the service.
