Draft Ordinance for the Prevention of Rubbish Accumulation

Aug. 30, 2016 - The Eagle County Board of Commissioners is seeking input from the public on a proposed ordinance to prevent the accumulation of rubbish on private property. If not controlled and eliminated, the accumulation of junk and rubbish can result in visual blight, nuisances, 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 and water pollution.

Community members are asked to submit comments to Cliff Simonton at by Sept. 23. Following the open comment period, the ordinance will be considered by the commissioners during a future board meeting.
