    The EDGE Committee was established by the Riverton City Council on September 1, 2020 through Resolution No. 1422.  This allows for citizen input and oversight of the projects funded by the tax revenues.  The purpose and scope of the activities of this Committee is:

    • To review and evaluate economic development applications for funding through use of 1/2 cent economic development tax as approved by the voters.
    • Consider and review economic development projects as requested by the Riverton City Council.
    • Initiate economic development proposals and forward them to the Riverton City Council as recommendations for consideration.

    For additional information regarding the 1/2 percent Economic Development tax, ballot language, and the EDGE funding at work in our community, please refer to the City’s website.
