No offence, but I don't buy it. I think you're old man might be pulling your leg.
I've worked for local governments before, and there's no way on earth that sort of decision would be left up to individual city Councils. The extent
of their powers is outlined clearly in a Local Government Act (or something similar). I guarantee there'd be nothing in there about taking charge of
burning mass bodies in furnaces, unless it's under the clause about wheeling around a cart yelling "bring out your dead".
And in any event, they wouldn't be breaking such news so far ahead of time. Even a hint of this being picked up in the media would bring hysteria
amongst the people... "What do you mean you're going to incinerate us in public furnaces!?!"
It would be organised by people at the higher echelons of government, and they certainly wouldn't be telling lower-scale public servants 6-12 months
