Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio Now that it looks like the Jordan School District split will appear on the ballot, at least one west-side city is moving forward with talk of a lawsuit.

Riverton Mayor Bill Applegarth says it's like lawmakers changed the rules in the middle of the game. "I think it's very immature on the part of the Legislature not to think in deeper terms and not to really be concerned about education and not winning an election," he said.

Applegarth says the Riverton City Council will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, then vote on whether to fund the lawsuit.

He says it's not a matter of whether the Jordan district should be split. He just thinks every district resident should be able to vote on it.
