    San Miguel County is getting ready to file another batch of liens against property owners who have run up thousands of dollars of debt in unpaid trash bills.

    Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to allow county staff to move forward with the process.

    The list contains 207 names of property owners owing between $1,199 and $1,742. The report states that the accounts have been delinquent since July 2003.

    Ortega said the issue has begun to boil over, noting that nine out of every 10 calls he receives from constituents these days are about roads.
