State threatens Continued from page 1 health,Langford was allowed to keep oerat!ng after he had lqsLhis landfill peit last fall becaus tht/revabb P' :' other alternative for disposing of solid waste in Gilmer County. At that time Langford was told to come up with an engineering plan for his dump site. He has failed to submit such a plan to the department of health. "We asked him to come up with an engineering plan. He needs to put some direction to the way he's going to logically operate the dump." added Goff. Goff added that another problem at the dump site is the fact that Langford is not providing daily soil coverage to the garbage, According to Goff, no date has been set for the next inspection of the local dump site. However, he noted that if no further improvements are made the department will ask Gilmer County Prosecuting Attorney Jay Perrtll to seek a cease and desist order. If the local prosecuting attorney fats to act on the department's request Goff said the department will seek prosecution through the state attorney general's office. The Democrat/Pathfinder was unable to reach Langford for comment before press time. The number of farms ,raising cattle decreased between 1969 and 1974, from 5,838 to 5,340.
