Q:  Are property owners responsible for their water lines on the property (from the alley in) or just from the meters?

A:  Per City of Laramie Municipal Code:  13.08.070 - Maintenance—Owner's responsibility.  The owner of any property connecting to the water utility shall be responsible for the maintenance of the water service line from the curb stop to the structure being served and shall keep this line in good condition at his expense.

On-Street Parking Ordinance

Posted on February 26, 2020 at 11:41 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Q.  Why did the city change their ordinance allowing parking of campers, trailers, cars and various types of recreational vehicles/items on streets of Laramie? These vehicles/items are hazardous. One section of east Curtis Street has two large campers and sometimes a utility trailer parked in a two block area. Ice builds up, leaves, thistles collected under them and visibility is difficult around the items not moved for nine months. Do not understand.

A.  At the urging of many community members, this change in policy was made by the City of Laramie, City Council in 2016 and received much support by residents. If you notice any trailers or vehicles that are illegally or hazardously parked, please report your concerns to Dispatch at 307-721-2526.
