Updating the nuisance code was put on ice during the Los Alamos County Council meeting Tuesday night. The council voted, with Councilors Nona Bowman and Mike Wheeler opposing, to put a freeze on any action with the proposed nuisance ordinance changes. Furthermore, the council agreed that prioritized enforcement of current ordinances should proceed.
There were several questions regarding the nuisance code that were posed to councilors during the meeting Tuesday night but because of the time, the council decided to only address the first question – does the council wish to revise and consolidate existing nuisance-related ordinances?
Revising the nuisance code was initially the council’s idea. According to agenda documents, during its last strategic planning session, council asked the Community Development Department (CDD) to prepare an ordinance establishing maintenance standards for commercial property.
In March, the agenda documents reported, to respond to the growing number of community complaints about nuisance code enforcement, the CDD presented a status report of the code enforcement program and regulations governing residential yards and private property.
