Property Tax Payments

The Tax Notices mailed to property owners have a printing error at the bottom of the page on the payment stubs. The colored headers for the First Payment and Full Payment were switched. The left-most stub should have been titled "FIRST HALF PAYMENT" and the right-most stub should have been "FULL PAYMENT". Otherwise, the payment stubs are correct.

Public Health Advisory: Jan 5, 2022

Public Health Advisory to Reduce COVID-19 Transmission

Severe and highly transmissible variants of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are a significant concern for San Juan County, Colorado. San Juan County Public Health (SJCPH) urges permanent residents, seasonal residents and visitors to take measures to protect themselves from this novel virus.

SJCPH advises all residents and visitors that the risk of contracting COVID-19 when participating in indoor activities with mixed households who are unvaccinated or have mixed or unknown vaccination status against COVID-19 remains high.

SJCPH will continue to evaluate the prevalence and risks of COVID-19 in San Juan County and adjust this Advisory and, if necessary, issue Public Health Orders accordingly.
