Works Board Rejects Bids On Landfill Prospects are that th city will handle its ow sanitary landfill . opera tions. The Anderson Boar of Works last night re jected all bids submittec for contracting such oper ations, saying the bid were higher than antici pated. Only three bids were sub milled, two of them over $85 000 apiece. The third bid sub milted quoled a low of $57,000 however, the low bidder, th board felt, had too little ex perience with landfill operations Board chairman Howard Ehr hart said the city could handle its own landfill operations a considerably less cost than shown on the two high bids and probably as well as the low bidder. The city currently is obligated under a collection contract which expires early in 1968. At that time the board said it might consider advertising for bids for a contract covering both collection and landfill operations. But this will depend on how well city-owned opera- lions develop before that time. Landfill operations at the city's new site along Ridge Rd. are expected to begin sometime in Octoberi Saved $100,000 One city official states the city saved about $100,000 by not putting city sewers in Woodlawn Heights.

There have been 36 fatal accidents on that highway since Jan. 1 and they have claimed 44 lives. Second worst road is U. S. 31, another north and south :horoughfare from South Bend to Louisville. It has killed 38 persons in 30 accidents. While U. S. 41 and U. S. 31 led the list of killer U. S. lighways, Indiana 78 and 37 prevailed among state routes. On Indiana 67, 18 accidents killed 29 persons, and on Indiana 37, 16 accidents were fatal to 22.. The fact that 67 and 37 both' curve dangerously through Morgan County on their way through the Southern Indiana bill country may account for Ihe ifact lhat Morgan has registered the third highest fatality toll among the counties this year, ranking behind only Marion and Lake, the two most fringe benefits over a three- year contract.
