Dr. Hollis S. Ingraham, the state health commissioner, announced the order last week. It is 'based on recommenda­ tions of Dr. David M. Schnei* der, who presided at a public hearing Jn the case. Under the order, $5,250 in penalties was assessed for sani­ tary code violations, but execu­ tion of the penalty was sus­ pended on condition the town complies with th e sanitary code if it continues using the site for refuse disposal. The $5,250 .comprised $250 each for 21 violations consist­ ing of failure to compact and cover refuse; failure to confine refuse in an area that could be effectively maintained, . an d failure to confine papers .to the refuse disposal area. Howard Burch, town super­ visor, represented Hartford at the hearing. The department was_ represented „by Donald A. MacBarg, ^counsel, and William B. Parker, 'attorney. In a sunitary landfill,_ refuse must be compacted daily and covered with at least six inches of earth, or other suitable rfla- ttrial. \Within a week after final deposits are made in ah area, they must be compacted and covered with two feet of ma­ terial.; in addition, flies, Todents, ver­ min and other insects must be kept under control; papers and refuse must be confined to the disposal area by fencing or otjfier suitable means; salvaging of refuse must be regulated to. avoid creating a nuisance, and thc approach road must be kept open,, to vehicular traffic throughout the year.
