Montana Vista Residents Upset Roads Weren’t Closed During 4th Of July

There is some fireworks trash left over from independence day celebrations in Montana Vista that has one resident in the area fuming.

Fernando Corral says he’s upset because there weren’t any road blocks on the street leading into his neighborhood.

According to Corral the road blocks were ordered by El Paso County Commissioners and they are intended to keep random people out during the fourth of July celebrations.

Since there were no roadblocks Corral says the revelers came in and left a mess on his front lawn.

Corral said, “I really really need someone to do something about this”, in regards to the piles of trash on his street.

ABC-7 has learned the Sheriff’s Office had a staffing strain and couldn’t close off all the streets, instead they chose to patrol in a style known as zone coverage where different regions in Montana Vista had visible deputy presence.

Both, Sheriff’s officials and commissioner Gandara tell ABC-7 they will see to it that the trash left over from leaving certain streets open gets picked up.
