“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,” the county stated.
