The fastest runner in Utah will be crowned in Riverton on Friday, June 21. A new one-mile race, dubbed “Utah’s Fastest,” will bring together runners from throughout the state to compete for the fastest runner title. The race, sponsored by Riverton City, is the first of its kind in Utah that has the goal of determining Utah’s fastest runner.

“Utah’s Fastest is truly a premier one-mile race,” said Riverton City Manager Konrad Hildebrandt. “We’re proud to host a race like this in Riverton that will bring together the best runners from Utah to compete.”
Riverton residents are encouraged to participate in the National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation and take the pledge to conserve water. The challenge runs throughout April, in conjunction with Earth Month. Riverton City is competing with cities across the US, and each pledge by a resident helps the city’s national standing.

To encourage conservation, the city is sharing one tip per day throughout April on social media to promote conservation in both culinary and secondary water use. Be sure to follow the city on Facebook and Twitter to see the daily tips!
Riverton City is excited to announce the creation of the Outstanding Citizen Award! The award is presented to Riverton residents who have made significant contributions to or had a significant positive impact on the community. The award is normally presented monthly at a Riverton City Council meeting.

Residents are encouraged to nominate deserving individuals for consideration for the award often. Selection criteria is broad, as contribution and impact can be measured or determined in many different ways. Things such as community leadership, community organization involvement, heroic action, humanitarian efforts, service, volunteerism, and even things like business success, personal or professional achievement, or recognition brought to the Riverton community as a result of an individual’s efforts.

Spring maintenance has begun on Riverton City’s secondary water system and will continue through April. The system will be fully operational and ready for general use in all areas of the city beginning May 1.

Residents are asked to not use secondary water until May 1, even though there might be water in the line at their home. The secondary water system needs to be completely full across all zones in the city for it to be fully pressurized, and any use prior to May 1 will make full pressurization more difficult to achieve.
Residents are encouraged to submit nominations for Riverton Town Days Parade Grand Marshal. Selection will be based on contributions to quality of life in Riverton, humanitarianism, personal achievement, service to the community, etc.

Nominees must be willing to serve as Grand Marshal and be able to attend the Town Days Parade on July 3. The deadline to submit a nomination is June 1, 2019.
Get prepared BEFORE disaster strikes! Riverton City's Emergency Preparedness Committee will be providing tips on what to purchase and what to do to help get you prepared over the next few months. This is a good place to start:

  • Water – At least 3 gallons per person, per day plus pets
  • Hand-operated can opener
  • Instant drinks (coffee, tea, powdered milk, powered fruit drinks)
  • 2 flashlights with extra batteries

  • Make your family disaster preparedness plan
  • Inventory disaster supplies already on hand, especially camping gear
  • If you fill your own water containers, mark them with the date filled
  • Date water/food containers if they are not dated
  • Conduct a home hazard hunt
