Deeper problems unresolved as city deals with the small stuff

As Riverton Mayor Ron Warpness worries about placing political signs in "his" yard, the deficit issues with the SLLP program go on and on.

Could the deficits be attributed to the continual awarding of contracts to the same contractors, without bid?

Or does the problem lie deeper at City Hall?

And what about the Wyoming Department of Criminal Investigation being proposed up near Riverton Regional Airport?

Initial bids were way off the mark and indicated a new bid process was in order. But the contract was awarded anyway, with "negotiations" as a way to lower the cost estimate.Stick with your signs, Your honor. That's easier to handle.
