Riverton finances on track at halfway mark of fiscal year; City judge and attorney appointed

The City of Riverton is on track with projected revenues and expenditures at the half-way mark of the fiscal year. Administrative Services Director Courtney Bohlender reported that revenues are at 48 percent of projections of the city’s $8.8 million budget. Bohlender said sales and use taxes are down from last year, but still at 48 percent of projections. She also reported that the most recent audit by the city had no findings, which means that the city's books were in order. The city payroll increased by 4.5 percent over last year, due primarily to a cost of living and merit pay raises for employees, reported Human Resources Director Kristen Watson. In other business Tuesday night the city council's committee assignments were approved, Teresa McKee was approved to be the municipal judge, Aaron Vincent as the alternate judge, and Rick Sollars as the city attorney. *Feature Image.
