To save taxpayer money, consider eliminating administrator post

Apr 20, 2017 - Daniel Noejik, Riverton


On the failure to sign up a new city administrator for Riverton, I have this question for everybody. Do we need an administrator. For a long time we never had one There were department heads who did the jobs. They reported to the mayor, and the council and attorney got involved when necessary.

all we hear these days is how broke the state is and the towns and counties. I know the city spends more than $100,000 to pay the administrator. How much did the failed search cost us, and how much will the new search costs us? I hope the paper will report that.

I would urge the city to reconsider this position in the interest of saving taxpayer funds and not duplicating work that others either could do are are already doing.
