Information

Photo example of address plate

You may find that your red address numbers are hard to read and have turned white because they fade so quickly. We are now switching to new GREEN numbers. They don’t fade as fast and have a slightly larger print so they are easily seen. If you haven’t received your new green numbers, you can pick them up from our office in Kemmerer or Afton for free. These numbers are for rural addresses outside of incorporated towns.

Address numbers are assigned at the point at which your driveway intersects the public or private road which provides access to your property. To ensure emergency response, the address numbers must be posted so that they are clearly visible from the roadway.

Guidelines
