Wyoming goes after transient pavers

It looks like the Wyoming Attorney General's Office has been busy with transient pavers. Transient pavers are small asphalt paving operations that travel from county to county during the warmer months seeking small paving jobs. They usually are seen working on private driveways, patch jobs and small parking lots. A lot of people feel like they get scammed by transient pavers because they get charged more than they expect, the work is often sub par and the transient pavers rarely correct any deficiencies in the work.

The Office recently completed two actions against transient pavers, one in Goshen County, Wyoming and the other involving paving jobs in northwest Wyoming. Both cases involved violations of the Wyoming Consumer Protection Act. The pavers were banned from doing paving work in Wyoming and were ordered to provide refunds to the affected consumers.

These cases show the flexibility of the Wyoming Consumer Protection Act. It is adaptable to many situations beyond the original list of prohibited activities articulated when the Act was first passed in 1973.
