San Miguel County will not be chipping Christmas trees this year. Please, do not dispose of Christmas trees at the trash building. The facility is already reaching its capacity limits with garbage. Residents are encouraged to reach out to Waste Management to coordinate the pick-up of their Christmas trees.
The Town has recently received many concerns regarding driving fast and reckless through the residential areas of Town. Many of your neighbors and friends feel genuinely afraid for their children, pets, themselves and property. This will be a discussion at our next General Assembly meeting to get General Assembly guidance on the best approach to get people to respect the concerns of your neighbors and friends. The fines for speeding and reckless driving (speeding is also reckless driving) is up to $300 each and may count points against your insurance.
Now that we have to plow a bit of snow, we would like to remind you not to park on the streets. Be sure your vehicles and trailers are not parked on or sticking too far out into the street. Snow movement can accidentally cause damage to a vehicle that impedes snow removal equipment.
