Reduce time-period of reservation of ordinances
The reservation of an ordinance for a deceased person should not have a time-period that i excess of some reasonable period of time (3-6 months) and when a reservation expires (without being performed by the reserver) then that individual (the reserver) should be unable to re-reserve that same person for some reasonable period of time (1 month). Looking at other posts regarding this it seems that the time-period is supposed to be two (2) years (which is excessive) and has even been extended due to COVID ...
I have members of my family for whom ordinances have been reserved as of 2019 November 8th and with an expiration date of 2024 May 4th which is four and a half (4.5) years (1644 days) in total and nearly three (3) years (34 months) with the work yet to be performed! That is an unacceptably long time and seems like a huge oversight to say the least. There is no good reason for such an extensive window of time and in fact results in the work for these persons being delayed even further and not to mention the frustration which is experienced while waiting for the inexcusably (and inordinately) long reservation to expire.
Also, in this case, I have emailed the reserver of these family members multiple times and have received no response and even if I had that does not mean that they will either release the reservation or perform the work which they have reserved so, obviously, that does not fix the problem.
This is unnecessarily frustrating and really needs to be fixed systemically and it surprises me that this is a thing ...🙃
