Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio Riverton could end up suing for the right to vote on the proposed school district split.

The Riverton City Council will vote tonight whether to fund a lawsuit to keep the Jordan district split off the ballot this fall.

Riverton Mayor Bill Applegarth is upset the legislature allowed the split to make it on the ballot. "Fortunately we have a form of government where you can go to the courts for that justice to prevail. And so that's where we have to go and need to go and must go and will go," he said.

Aapplegarth said people who live on the west side should be able to vote because of how it will affect them if other cities leave the district.
