Once again we begin to see and feel the changing of the seasons which gives us a chance to reflect and review on where we have been and where we are going. I want to express my appreciation to the many citizens of Riverton who have heeded the call for water conservation and taken personal action to reduce their water usage this summer. As a community, we individually sacrificed and have largely made it through the hot days of summer without having to have severe water restrictions mandated by government. Personal responsibility is the key to creating a great community. Thank you!
As we move into the fall, I would invite all citizens to take personal action to be safe and cautious around our schools. Students will be returning to classes. This will dramatically increase the number of people walking along our roads and sidewalks. Please follow posted speed limits, be aware of and slow down in school zones, and remind your new drivers to do so too. I would rather we take personal action to protect our youth than have to have it mandated by a car with flashing lights. Both, are designed to keep our children safe, I just prefer the first method. Let’s continue to work together to make Riverton a great place to live!
