The Haywood Cuunly Board of
Health has issued two regulations
designed to protect the public
health by controlling the disposal
Of trash and garbage and the gen
eral construction and use of septic
According to C. C. Francis,
Chairman of the Board of Health,
the problem is bad and is becoming
worse, lie pointed out that until
now there were no regulations con
cerned with the difficulty and
therefore, no method of control.
The regulation effecting garbage
requires, in part, that all garbage
must be kept in non-absorbent con
tainers and have close fitting lids.
All trucks hauling trash and gar
bage shall be covered with metal
or heavy canvas. All trash and
garbage shalJ be disposed of by
either the open dump, the sanitary
land fill, or the burning method.
No trash or garbage may be dump
ed at any unauthorized place. Any
person hauling trash or garbage
must first obtain a permit and pay
an annual fee for the privilege.
Regulations concerning septic
tanks are more involved, but are
based around the following ruling:
"Sewage, sewage effluent, and hu
man excreta shall not be allowed to
remain open to the atmosphere nor
on the surface of the ground, nor
shall it be allowed to be discharg
ed into any streams, well, spring
or any source of supply of drink
Another Important ruling is: "No
person shall construct or install a
septic tank system without a writ
ten permit from the Health Of-
Visitors From Far And Near Come To See Foliage
fipected and approved by a health
Officer before it can be put into
use. ,Stlll (another regulation is;
"No permit shall be Issued by the
Htnlth 'V fleet for the construction,
irtW1Tirf1W nv' .iwu ' J.ni.iihh'T
Other ' regulations concern the !
standards of construction for sep
tic tanks and sand filter trenches.
Violations of any of these regu
lations will be considered a mis
demeanor and be punishable by a
fine not exceeding $50.00 or 30 days
improsonmcnt. Chairman Francis
stressed that the Board plans to
crack down hard after November 1.
The regulations apply In towns
only where no sewage lines are
available. Industrial planls, already
under State law, are also not af
fected. Existing structures will not
be affected either.
Francis also stated that the
Boiird of Health hopes soon to have
sanitary land fills for dumping in

Commissioners To Pick
Date For Bond Election
A special meeting of the County
Commissioners will be held Mon
day at the courthouse to set a new
date for the school bond election.
The. date was first set for Nov.
17th, but certain technical legal
points in connection with such elec
tions forced a postponement.
In the interval since many clubs
and Individuals have gone on recr
ord as favoring the expansion pro
ject, and meetings have been held
throughout the county. Only re
cently an investigation by the Lions
Club revealed some of the shock
ing conditions in the schools that
could be corrected if only the
money were available.
It was unofficially predicted by
people in a position to know that
the new date would be either De
cember 1st or 5th.
