"What people have had for nothing they'll now have to pay for," Carmody said. "But these same people went from a privy to indoor plumbing. Now they wouldn't go hack to that either." In explaining the need for sanitary landfills, Carmody points to the clmnges in living and buying in the last 20 years -- the difference between each Montanan throwing away a half pound of gbage a day 20 years ago compared to three pounds today. The State Health Depart- ment is responsible for helping communities develop adequate disposal systems in accordance with the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1966 and the Solid Waste Districting Act of 1969 passed by the state legislature. Small communities and rural areas often have trouble I demand for land policy grows Humphrey. Some  are probably best settled at the federal level. Others might best be handled at state or local levels. "Land use policies will be established with or eithout your involvement," Hum- phrey says. "If you are con- cerned about how these policies will affect you and future generations, get in- volved in community affairs. Contact your county com- missioner or city council member to find out if any zoning is being done in your area," for land use by the agricultural economics on rural communities is a policy department at NDSU iden. related problem.

The social who should be making the Plains impact of such development decisions about land use, says finding a place to locate a sanitary landfill and do not have the money to pay for its operation, Carmody said. He oaid in many cases tbeso problems could be overcome by county - wide refuse collection or by several small towns cooperating in the maintenance of one single lamfflll. Clifford Haines, Flathead County commissioner, has watched his county clean up considerably in the years since it began a county.wide landfill operation. , "We feel it is the only economical way to go," Haines said. "People are real/zing how well it works." Flatbead County has eight- yard refuse containers in several outlying areas in the county. A 25-yard garbage packing truck travels the county picking up garbage every day and taking it to a single landfill. The service costs about $12 per year per household, which is lower than the state average of about  per month.

Mayor Gene Fuller of West Yellowstone has had eight years to evaluate his city's sanitary landfln. "It is a very effective way of taking care of garbage disposal, Fuller said. "The landfill here works very well, and the town is cleaner." The main problem Fuller sees wsth landfill operations is that reseeding of the land is needed and that some com- munities may have trouble obtaining landfill sites in a time of increasing land prices. Once a landfill is full, it can be reseeded and used for pasture until the land settles. "Most oftbe towns that have converted to a landfill have used revenue sharing money," Carmody said. "The more people who use a landfill the leu it costs." Carmody said the State Health Department will be working with communities on an area-by-area basis to help them develop landfill sites.

Improvements made are a new hammer and pellet mill as well as new mixing facilities and added ingredients storage. A new boiler and large capacity steam roller unit is a part of the project to provide greater efficiencies. The renovation should more than double feed production according to Ray Blomquist, mgr. and also eliminate pollution that might result from feed production. The local plant supplies feed and farm supplies locally and to Peavey and independent dealers over an area bounded by Glasgow, Hardin, Beach and Grenora, H. D. The firm employs 35 tradesmen. Near future plans include remodeling of the retail store. Peavey is appreciative of the cooperation Of the public while they were out of production the past 4 months.
