From the county:
The County will let the judge know that the order has been ignored and the judge will probably appoint a receiver for the property for the purposes of bringing it into compliance with the order. Alternately, he could also authorize the county remove the structures and recover its costs from the owner. Either way, we know the neighbors have put up with this situation through the long legal process but we want them to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hard to say if its as soon as thirty days but its certainly a lot closer to resolution.

Remember the eye sore we told you about in January near Austin Bluffs Parkway? ("County squares off with a government contractor over zoning violations," Jan. 6, 2016
Well, the shabby trailers
are still there, but El Paso County
has won a judgment that might force their removal.
We say might, because not everyone conforms to a judge's order. If the owners of the property fail to remove the 16 units, which have been there about 2.5 years, it's unclear what the county could do. But in similar cases, the county could hire a contractor to remove the trailers and dispose of them and file a lien against the property for the bill.
In any event, the owners have 30 days to get rid of the obnoxious deteriorating trailers. Here's the order: (There are two petitions, because there are two landowners involved.)
