Due to increasing drought conditions and excessive water use, Riverton City is asking residents and businesses alike to cut their secondary water use by 25%. City-wide, 30-34 million gallons of secondary water are being consumed each day. That equates to an average of 2,952 gallons per day per household of secondary water.

“We realize this may be an inconvenience for some people, but the conditions are such that we are going to have a real problem if we don’t immediately begin to reduce our water use,” said Riverton City Manager Konrad Hildebrandt. “This conservation request is going to take a concerted effort and a change in habits.”

Helpful Resources
In an emergency meeting on July 19, the Riverton City Council unanimously approved a resolution declaring the city’s intent to leave the Unified Police Department (UPD) at the end of 12 months; though the council did so with the understanding that the decision may change if substantial differences between UPD and the city can be resolved.

The urgency and reasoning behind declaring this intent came on July 18, the day before a UPD Board of Directors meeting, when city officials finally received information about specific details of an agenda item that would make changes to an agreement between UPD and its member communities. The proposed changes, which mostly concern the assets and resources the city has invested in UPD over the years, have the potential to impact Riverton taxpayers in a negative financial way.

Riverton City elected officials will be holding a town hall meeting in August to discuss this issue. Details will be provided when available via email and on the city's website.

Miss Riverton, Gabrielle (Gabby) Hindoain, has been working hard to bring awareness to an issue that will positively impact the lives of Riverton junior high aged youth and their families: social media use.

"When I was younger...I thought, 'Oh Wow, I wish I was prettier, good looking or healthier like them.' And you feel bad about yourself, and that’s too bad because I know so many beautiful kids that are amazing and gorgeous and they don't realize it because they don't match up to these photoshopped people," said Miss Riverton Gabby Hindoain. "We need to get them to spend time away from social media so that they are less affected and have less exposure to those photos and get away from that feeling and work on being their natural beautiful selves which is kind of learning a little more self-love."
