(Pitchengine Communities) * (Riverton, Wyo.) - The City of Riverton honored a long-time worker at Tuesday night's city council meeting on his retirement. Robert Crippen worked for the city 13 year as an equipment operator in the sanitation and recycling programs. "He demonstrated a high level of accountability and is an honorable human being. We are sad to see him leave," said Public Works Director Kyle Butterfield. Crippen received a silver watch from the city. Another retiree was set to be honored Tuesday night as well, but Walt Stickels, the Assets Division Manager, was unable to attend the meeting. Another retirement ceremony will be held for him. This past week the city's Administrative Services Director, Courtney Bohlender, also announced that she will be retiring before the start of the new fiscal year. City Administrator Steven Weaver said the openings would be advertised. #county10 #news
