I agree with the ordinance, I live in an area where neighbors have junk upon junk and it makes our place look bad. Cars and trucks that don't run, camp trailers, boats. Its time this stuff stops, we have covenants for our place for owners to put up fences, they won't. So many law breakers in this state and san juan county. No pride in what they own, and they must think their treasures are pleasing to the eye, they are NOT! Your treasures are your neighbors eyesore! clean it up take pride in your property.
Please help we who care about our home and property.
Is there a weed ordinance?

Dennis Chavez failed to mention all the other junked vehicles and other worthless junk that litter his property or properties he has owned. He has promised to leave the U.S.A he seems to hate so much. He has promised to move to meheco all his life. We are still waiting, Dennis. What he needs to have done all his life is GET A JOB, instead of leaching off his working wife.

Mr. Holgate was quoted as saying "Any time I see junk piled up, I see freedom..."

Well, anytime I see junk piled up, I see a lazy and uneducated person with disregard for their fellow citizens.

If people were responsible citizens then government wouldn't impose itself in this situation. I don't like feds telling me what to do but when it's local AND the problem is absolutely horrible I'm fine with it.

We've shown that won't do the right thing without this regulation for decades...Freedom must be exercised responsibly.

This topic is tired. And your vernacular is more Navajo than redneck. Are you that Melanie wackjob in disguise?

A few weekends spent cleaning up ones yard and assessing what is of value and whether keeping ruined vehicles is warranted would alleviate this problem. If the past is any indication of the future,the muscle needed to clean these yards will be spent complaining about why the yards don't need cleaned instead of buckling down and fixing the problem.

I own a nice, clean, well kep;t acre with a modest house. It is accessed at $30,000 more tjhan I can sell irt for. The county accessoer does not take inrto account the scum bum neighbors who store junk, and trash that reduces it actual value. I say, letr's ut it on a ballot, and hold a special election. I know there are more decent citizens in San Juan County than there are pigs.

I'm sick of seeing property in the county that looks like a dump site. There are those who keep their property cleaned up but then there are those who pile junk and never get rid of anything! Also the junk car lots. They just put one out in Kirtland and what was a decent view is not obstructed by wrecked cars for as far as you can see. It's an eyesore and it makes people driving through the area think we are some third world country. I say the county is doing something right by trying get lazy property owners to do something.

I'm sorry that you can't afford to own a boat or camp tailer of your own---if you did you'd realize that property owners need to park them on their OWN property. Just keep working and someday you too can afford such luxuries and then your neighors can be jealous of you too. Lets hope they won't be narrow minded enough to object to them, like you do.
Loosen up and enjoy life, a day at the lake or a weekend camping would do wonders about that anal aitude of yours, the one that makes you feel you need to try to manage your neighbors affairs.

The article says "Those meetings, for which every property owner was mailed notice, drew nearly 250 participants. A vast majority of participants in the meetings and a mailed community survey expressed interest in junk and trash ordinances in the county, Stark said."

My family is a property owner in the county. We have never received any mail regarding these meetings.

Yeah tell them. I wish, I had a boat so I could go trolling at Navajo Dam. It sucks off shore fishing. The San Juan River is nice to fish, off shore. If I had a nice boat, I would head off to Page, AZ. and go boating in the Glen Canyon National Park. All those canyons. Then off to Lake Mead at Las Vegas, Nv. then go south to Davis Dam at Laughlin, NV.. Yeah It's nice to have a big Truck and a nice bass boat. Yeah, I seen the prices of these boats. 30-90 grand. That is alot of cash. One day I might win the LOTTERY.

BTW all those old tires out front, they aren't junk, they are for the roof. I'll put them up there as soon as I can figure out where to dig for the ladder.
