BOZEMAN, Mont. -

The Gallatin City-County Board of Health is asking a judge to stop a Logan man from running a trailer park that county officials say is infested with rodents and has trash piled on trailers.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that officials filed the request in Gallatin County District Court on Friday to prohibit Gene Morgan from running Morgan Court.
County officials also contend there are more trailers on the 7-acre property than allowed and that there are unpermitted sewer systems and unauthorized connections.
County officials say in the complaint they became aware of the problem May 16 when the Montana Department of Health and Human Services notified county officials of a Hantavirus illness and death possibly related to the Morgan Court. Residents also complained of a rodent infestation.
