To keep public safe amid cemetery renovation

MENDEZ, Cavite – The local government here, under Mayor Francisco “Cocoy” Mendoza Jr., advised the public that entry inside the Mendez Public Cemetery in Barangay Poblacion VII will be prohibited starting Friday, October 28, 2022.

The Mendez local government unit (LGU) decided to close the cemetery ahead of Undas for public safety and health reasons, citing ongoing rehabilitation of the cemetery and due to 200 “open” graves.

The relatives of the departed loved ones are encouraged to place and light their candles at the gate entrance of the Mendez public cemetery.

Last October 14, 2022, a public consultation was called regarding the renovation of the public cemetery that the previous administration left behind.
