Riverton Mayor Richard Gard last night delivered some good news at the city council meeting. He and Community Development Director Eric Carr said the city had received a letter from Smith’s Food and Drug officials indicating the company will move on building a gasoline station adjacent to their West Main store this year, instead of next year.

The site is the vacant land where the McDonald’s restaurant used to sit before it moved to North Federal.  The property fronts on West Main Street.
