Service groups submit $390,000 in funding requests to Riverton council; work session Tuesday

Twelve local service organizations will address the Riverton City Council during a work session Tuesday, requesting money to support their work in the community.

The city funds such requests annually as “contracts for service.”

Last year, Riverton spent about $275,000 on contracts for service, fulfilling each organization’s entire request for city funding.
