Riverton City Administrator Steven Weaver and Mayor Ron Warpness said Tuesday night’s meeting agenda will include whether city staff should decide on catering permits, rather than bringing them to the council, and whether chickens will be allowed in city limits, which is against the current city ordinance. There will also be a citizen’s award presentation by the Riverton Police Department and presentation of a $12,000 check to the city from Encana to pay for a natural gas vehicle conversion.

– Superintendent Tammy Cox said the “soft lockdown” at Shoshoni School Thursday turned out to be a false alarm

– Author Bill Sniffin said his coffee table book  called “Wyoming’s 7 Greatest Natural Wonders has already sold 5,000 copies in 5 weeks and includes spectacular photos by the state’s best photographers

– Joan McVoy of the state’s regional poison center said keep the poinsettias and heirloom chipped ornaments with possible lead paint out of the reach of children and make sure visitors put medications where kids and animals can’t get to them. She also issued a warning about disc batteries that are the size of a dime or smaller and used in toys and cards, which if ingested can cause injury or even death.
