(Riverton, Wyo.) –  The new Public Works Director for the city of Riverton is Kyle Butterfield. Butterfield went through a round of interviews and and a public meet-and-greet earlier this month. He was one of three finalists for the job after a regional search. At the time of his interview, two of the other finalists had withdrawn. Butterfield comes to Riverton from Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

The Riverton City Council ratified Butterfield’s hiring after contract details were ironed out. He replaces the late Bill Urbigkit, who was stricken with a brain tumor last year and died on April 4th of this year.
