The fire ban includes the Town of Blanca. No open and/or unattended fires, weed or leaves burning, and no barrel burning. Violators can be fined and or cited into court. Thank you for your cooperation.

Due to the extremely dry and windy weather conditions and the threat these conditions pose for extreme fire danger the Costilla County Sheriff's Office, Costilla County BOCC, Costilla County Fire Chief, and the Emergency Manager enacted a fire ban for Costilla County. If you have any questions regarding the fire ban please contact our office at 719-672-0673.

News From Blanca Colorado Town Hall

The 2016 Water Quality Report for 2015 is available at the Town's website:

The Town of Blancareceived the annual Water System of the Year award from Colorado Rural Water Association (CRWA). The award was presented at CRWA’s Recognition Banquet on Wednesday, February 13, 2013 during the 32nd Annual Conference and Exhibition held in Colorado Springs


IT IS OFFICIAL: CYANCO withdrew its application for the sodium cyanide transfer station just outside of Blanca. In a news release from the company, Bob Warriner, VP for Sales and Marketing said that "We listened to the concerns that (the community residents who attended the meeting) expressed and we want time to carefully consider these concerns and continue to investigate other potential sites." The company recommended that the public hearing scheduled for March 9th should be postponed.

Trinidad Martinez, Costilla County Zoning Administrator, said that the company was aware that if they wanted to renew the application at a later date, they would have to start the process all over again with a new application.


More Truth: Potential Good News, although not yet official. Cyanco called the County to withdraw their application for the sodium cyanide transfer station. The County is awaiting an official withdrawal in writing.

Wait for official word before celebrating -- until the withdrawal is received in writing, they can always change their minds.


Regarding Cyanco:

Social media has a lot of positive functions but also a lot of negative ones. One of the large negative ones is all of the misinformation going around.

Here is the TRUTH.
1. The proposed cyanide transfer station has NOT been approved.
2. The County Planning Commission meeting scheduled to hear the application on March 9th has been postponed. A county review of the application found a problem that has to be addressed before it would go before the Commission.
3. Blanca has no jurisdiction outside of the Town limits. The Town does have advisory status for anything that is to go in within 3 miles of the Town limits. There will be an official position of the Town regarding the application presented to the County Planning Commission before the meeting in which it reviews the application. The Town can not allow or prohibit anything outside its borders. It can only advise.

Online Payments

Website Down. Pay Fines Online

The Town's website will be down for a while. The ISP has decided not to host small sites like ours. We are currently in the process of finding another host, but the site may be down for a few weeks.

In order to pay any court fines online, you will need to go directly to Blanca's GovTeller page at

As soon as a new host is found, the new website will be updated.

I've been hearing from some residents that the Mayor of Blanca, Myrrl W. Smith was entertaining making the Town of Blanca or Costilla County a Sanctuary City/County and that a petition supposedly went around. Firstly, I've never heard of any petition, nor any kind of meeting of the residents of Blanca knowledge of this petition. Let me just say that if this is true, doesn't everyone think that illegals are already being snuck in and that the crime in not only Blanca but all of Costilla County, especially Ft. Garland, has been going up? Also now we have to pay for a new Sierra Blanca School to educate the children of these illegals thus increasing our property taxes in a County that's suppose to be the poorest county in all of Colorado with mostly Retirees & Veterans on a fixed income. What the heck are you people thinking.
