Saguache County Preserves the Public Health, Safety and Welfare of County Citizens

Nuisance Ordinance Adopted….

The Board of County Commissioners adopted the Saguache County Nuisance Ordinance Tuesday, April 18, 2023, following several readings and opportunities for public comment.

It is the intent of the BOCC to make sure that Saguache County constituents have every opportunity to be educated about how this new ordinance affects them and to be aware of resources available to them.  In addition, it is the intent of Saguache County Code Enforcement and Saguache County Land Use Department to work cooperatively with landowners and/or other responsible parties in a combined effort to beautify our county.

Five educational sessions will be held throughout Saguache County during the month of June as follows: 

  • Tuesday June 20th - 5:00PM at the Center Kiwanis Club Building located at 510 South Broadway in Center, CO.
  • Wednesday June 21st – 5:00PM at the KV Estates Clubhouse

The Board of County Commissioners of Saguache County concludes that providing a comprehensive mechanism for identifying, abating, and compelling the removal of rubbish; including trash, junk and garbage is necessary in order to preserve the public health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Saguache County.  Nuisances, if not controlled and eliminated, can result in visual blight, incompatibility with existing land uses, attraction of disease infested rodents and other vermin, fire and other hazards, depositing of hazardous or toxic substances in unapproved sites, and air, noise, light and water pollution.  The County intends to remedy and eliminate the existence of nuisances.
