The San Miguel County treasurer's office closed around 10:30 a.m. today because of dust created by a construction project in the county courthouse, Treasurer Alfonso Ortiz announced. The office is expected to be closed for the rest of the day.
He said his office is taking notes of the health effects that employees believe are caused by the project.
Last week, County Manager Les Montoya told the County Commission that he would allow supervisors to close their offices if the dust and noise from the renovation project became bearable.
