    Utility Companies with signage.

    I stopped by my local Public Service Water Company today. They have new signage on the door. It has been put up in the last month.
    Question, does signage on a public utility company have force of law? This company is county owned and ran.

    61-7-14. Right of certain persons to limit possession of firearms on premises. Does not mention signs.

    61-3B-2. Trespass in structure or conveyance. Does not require signage.

    As used in this article: [ ... ]
    (8) "Trespass" under this article is the willful unauthorized entry upon, in or under the property of another, but shall not include the following: [ ... ]
    (c) Permissive entry, whether written or oral, and entry from a public road by the established private ways to reach a residence for the purpose of seeking permission shall not be trespass unless signs are posted prohibiting such entry.

    How does this answer his question regarding county-owned (public) property?

    I'm not sure if this would fall under private property, as in fact it is a community property. A good friend of mine is the foreman who oversees installation repair ect. I used to live in an area where you had cisterns. There were several dry holes drilled for water. Everyone hauled their water, I had a 4000 gal cistern. But during dry months I would go the company. They had a hydrant with a coin operated water supply. I could but 210 gal for $1.75.He caught some people stealing there water from a hydrant. He told me told me he could have had them charged under terrorist activity. For it was a public water supply owned and operated by state and county funds. Is that true? I don't know. So would the office and plant is county/state ran. Will it still fall under *PRIVATE* property. Where signage has no force of law, unless asked to leave and you refuse?
