The meeting thereafter turned to Councilmen Kyle Larson who mentioned that
“the airport here is very near and deer to my heart, I love flying out of Riverton and when I get home I can just get in my car and be in my bed in 25 minutes, whereas the alternative Casper, I would be dodging deer and elk all the way back to Shoshoni.”
Riverton City Administrator Tony Tolstedt informed the council members of an airport board meeting scheduled to take place the following Friday of next week January 15th, 2021, located in the Council Chambers of Riverton City Hall starting at 8pm, the public is welcome to join.
