Short of killing them, which I and my neighbors have been doing to the extent that our complex manager will allow. What can I do to keep all the Chalk Bluff water treatment plant's vermin from raiding my veggies and flowers? They have even developed a taste for hot chilis!

Rock squirrels are tenacious! Exclusion from the garden with wire fencing or protecting individual plants is the best method, but it can be expensive. Here's a publication from New Mexico Cooperative Extension that details all of your control possibilities.
