TONOPAH, Nev. (AP) - Nye County is hoping to buy a sliver of Nevada’s public lands to expand the Mount Moriah Cemetery.

The Bureau of Land Management is accepting public to sell 7.5 acres just west of the tiny town of Manhattan in Big Smoky Valley. About 2 acres within the parcel has been used as a cemetery since the early 1900s.

County officials have requested the direct land sale to expand the cemetery, which is currently at capacity. The effort has been ongoing for about three years.

A 45-day public comment period on the proposal closes July 7.
