RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Fremont County officials say they considered but have decided not to require permits for landowners who want to rent out their property to campers during the solar eclipse in August.

County planner Steve Baumann says there is no feasible way to require landowners to get such permits.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/2pcUKNn ) Fremont County is in prime viewing territory for the Aug. 21 eclipse. Local officials estimate 10,000 people will travel to the area for the event.

Just east of Fremont County, Natrona County will require landowners to get permits to host campers during the eclipse.
