May 12th Designated As "Free Day" At Montezuma County Landfill

Montezuma County

The Montezuma County commissioners agreed Monday to designate May 12th as a free day for all individual county residents at the landfill. However, in a change from past years, they will not allow Cortez trash trucks in for free. This means the City of Cortez will face about $2,000 in fees for its annual city cleanup, which involves a week-long collection of trash. City-council members discussed the situation at a workshop Tuesday night, but decided to go ahead with their annual cleanup as usual.
