South Valley - Brent Bennett was a dedicated employee to the city of Riverton and its residents for 27 years. Bennett started his job in the public works department in 1989; at that time, he and five other employees were in the department. 

The department, as well as the facility they are housed, has grown substantially since then.  In addition to his job for the city, Bennett also became a member of the Riverton Rough Riders in 1972, and has since been in charge of the Riverton Rodeo. In fact, it’s become a family affair. He and his children and grandchildren all participate in the rodeo.

“I loved working with the people and helping people out with problems,” Bennett said. “I have always been proud of what I have accomplished with the city. I have been involved with all the road repairs over the years, and we have always done the best we could with what we have had to work with.  It’s been a nice place to live.”

Bennett and his wife Renee have been married since 1973, and have three boys and 9 grandchildren.  Bennett plans on keeping with the family on the rodeo circuit, and enjoying his free time and doing some traveling. 

“It has been a great privilege to work with Brent Bennett,” Trace Robinson, Riverton City public works director, said. “His longstanding relationships with city staff and residents, along with his insightful expertise, made him a valuable asset to Riverton City and especially to our public works department. Brent has a sincere love for our community. His service as an employee and his dedicated volunteer efforts with the rodeo have contributed to Riverton’s successful growth and warm hometown spirit.”
