The San Miguel County Department of Public Health announced today, with Board of County Commissioner approval, that it will allow construction and landscaping services back into safe levels of operations with approved applications.

The commissioners and Public Health Director carefully weighed the health and safety considerations, disease rates, and available treatment capacity before recommending this first approach to reopen a small part of our local construction industry.

County Manager Mike Bordogna said, “We are pleased to be taking this first step towards bringing San Miguel County ‘Back to Business’, and we will continue our safe approach going forward.”

Public Health Director Grace Franklin added, “I am confident we are on the right path, and we will continue to take measured steps, always in the best interest of public health and safety.”

The online permitting process for construction and landscaping businesses to resume under the new protocol will be available on this county webpage as of Friday, April 24.

Applications will be vetted for compliance to guidelines, approved, and then shared with the local jurisdictions where the work will be occurring.
