WACO - The county run pauper cemetary is running out of room.

Officials say McLennan County averaged about six pauper burials a month in 2009.

A pauper is defined as someone who dies without enough money to pay for a burial.

Presently, Restland Cemetery only has room for 100 graves.

At the current rate, the spots would be full by April of 2011.

Officials say the county will have to buy more land to accommodate the burials.
