(Fremont County, WY) – Citizens are reminded that it’s illegal to remove gravel, rocks and other items from state-owned or state-leased gravel pits.

State-owned and state-leased gravel pits are clearly labeled at their entrances with signs, according to Wyoming Department of Transportation maintenance foreman Jim Berry of Cody.

“Please respect state property,” Berry said. “Thanks to everyone for their understanding.”
