City Council to Put Support for Rec Center in Writing
Cory Rota, who has been leading an effort to create a recreation complex in Riverton in collaboration with Mission Possible in Lander approached the podium at Tuesday’s meeting and gave the council members an update, following the groups meeting held Monday, December 4th.
Rota spoke confidently and suggested that Riverton may see a rec center as early as next year.
The Council approved the writing of a letter on behalf of the City of Riverton in support of Rota and the community effort to establish a county-wide recreation complex. The letter will aid the group in obtaining grant funding and other types of support as they move into the heavy lifting stages of the project.
