2017 Gravel Days

Gravel will be available for purchase from the County from June 5-9th, 2017 and August 21-25th, 2017. The price this year will be $10.00 per yard.

If you are interested in purchasing gravel from the County this year, you will need to come down to our office and pick up a purchase order prior to receiving any gravel. You will need to bring the purchase order with you to the pit when you arrive to pick up your gravel.

Availability for specific pits will be determined closer to the gravel weeks. If you have received a purchase order from the County, we will contact you to let you know the date and times for loading at each pit.

Please be aware that if you are planning to pick up gravel yourself, we ask that you wear a high visibility safety vest while in the pit area as it is required for safety concerns.
