EDITORIAL: Making it fair

-A A +A
By The Staff

The San Miguel County Commission last week passed an ordinance allowing the county to file liens on properties in which owners don’t pay their solid waste bills.

This decision comes a few months after the county put a bunch of accounts on inactive status after it became apparent that they were uncollectible.

The commissioners said they felt it was unfair that some people always pay their bills, while others don’t and essentially get away with it.

This new ordinance will eliminate this inherent inequity.
