Riverton City elected officials released a statement encouraging the Salt Lake County Council to vote against approval of a property rezone for the proposed 8,700+ Olympia Development, so that concerns about the project could be addressed. The SLCo Council ended up approving the rezone despite the opposition. Salt Lake County Mayor Ben BcAdams has since faced public pressure to address concerns, including from an online petition .

To better leverage the talent of the community, Riverton City is seeking applicants for several new volunteer committees. The committees have been created to assist city leaders in implementing the city’s strategic priorities and will be formed in these areas:

  • Community Events,
  • Economic Development,
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Parks, Recreation and Trails.

Committee and application details can be found at the link below. Applications are due by June 15.
Deseret News – Josh Holt returned home to a hero’s welcome Monday with his wife, Thamy, and two stepdaughters at his side, finally ending a two-year ordeal behind Venezuelan prison bars on what U.S. officials and his family says were false charges.

"Man, that was a long vacation. I don’t recommend a two-year vacation to Venezuela," he joked to about 200 people gathered in the Old Dome Meeting Hall at Riverton City Park where the city threw the Holts a Memorial Day homecoming celebration.

  • With temperatures rising, it is important to remember we cannot leave children and pets unattended in vehicles.
  • In the first 20 minutes, a vehicle is turned off and left in the heat, almost 70% of the heating occurs. So even leaving children and pets in a car for a short duration is dangerous.
  • Cracking windows does little to help with this.
  • During days where temperatures are as low as 80 degrees, interior temperatures can climb as high as 123 degrees in less than an hour.
  • Dark objects inside a car can reach temperatures close to 200 degrees.
