Should have also targeted and pushed for outside cleanups and eradication of weeds from business properties. Recycling training and weed/trash control go hand in hand.

I think that the City and County have good code enforcement departments that take care of the problems with weeds and trash. They have ordinances for that type of thing.
I also think to ''target'' buisness properties is not the best way to get people to work with one another.A helping hand goes a long way in solving many problems.

Sounds like the same old- excuses and denial. Guess that is the Deming way, which then is the reason nothing seems to get done. According to a Las Cruces article: Garbage and Weeds top complaints for code violations- "The two biggest complaints voiced to the city last year and the year before, for that matter-were both five letter words- weeds and trash. Nothing else came close."

In another article; Code Enforcement Violations Drop in Las Cruces- More than 23,000 complaints about weeds and rubbish in yards came in during 2010 compared to more than 32,000 in 2009. Property owners or tenants who are cited for a code violation must appear in Las Cruces Municipal Court. Citations are considered petty misdemeanors and the maximum penalty for non compliance with city codes is a $500 fine and as long as 90 days in jail. The LCSN reported there were 8,500 violations for unsightly or uncontrolled weeds reported by Codes Enforcement officers in 2010. That resulted in 458 citations issued to property owners or tenants.

Seems to me that is the reason Las Cruces looks so clean. So maybe if our Code enforcers would even just give people a warning the problems would get resolved. I suggest you take a good look around, then you'll see what I'm talking about. There are some that take good care of their business and properties, then there are those that don't. Deming could do a lot better and be a nicer place. And yes a helping hand does go a long way also but wouldn't it be better if everyone took care of their own.

Nice stats on Las Cruces. Thats their top complaint? weeds and trash? Ok lets talk about Deming I wish weeds and trash were the top complaints, But we have, meth, child abuse, theft, government corruption, ethics violations, waste of tax dollars and government employees who, steal , drink and drive, poor education and last but not least ''fast ducks'', so with these being the top complaints in the paper in Deming its a wonder code enforcement is not consentrating a few weeds during the hundred degree weather. How did the weeds even dare to survive this year?
What propery in the downtown area do you wish to ''target". is there more than one thats needs a good lashing? I have looked around and what I see are nice light posts, more trash cans, benches.

Again sounds like more excuses. Didn't mean to offend anyone just wanted to spread some awareness of our surroundings. You must either work for the County or the City. I do commend the Keep Luna County Beautiful for all they have done with their trash can contests and cleanups. They have done a lot!! But somehow the message is not reaching everyone, otherwise Deming would look a lot cleaner. Yup there a many areas I could site but I don't want to embarrass anyone. If you have a business then take a look outside on your property and if there are weeds pull them out, if your hedges look like they need trimming, and your planters don't have any flowers, your trees have branches tall than your building, then it needs some attention. Hows that? Maybe what Deming needs is more landscaping workers going around and soliciting work from these areas. That might do the trick. Raising our standards a bit wouldn't hurt.

Empty planters are a problem? Trees taller than buildings are a problem? WOW I had no idea that things were getting to this point in Deming. For real?

After seeing all the for sale signs and vacant buildings around, I would say the tumbleweeds will soon be the only residents in Deming. LOL
