After nearly 14 years with the City of Green River, Finance Director Jeff Nieters is saying goodbye.

His last day will be June 2.

Nieters said he plans to move to Cheyenne to join his wife, who was recently hired as a nurse at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center. He said he aims to find a job in the nonprofit sector as well.

"I really like Green River, but my job here is done and it's time to move on," Nieters said.

He said one of the best aspects about his tenure working as the finance director involves working with people. He said his experience with the city has been good overall, but said there were a few bumps in the road during the past few years. He said the last few years have been more difficult as a result of shirking municipal revenues. The decreased revenues have hindered his ability to help department heads and the Council find funding for their project proposals, which he admits has caused him to feel hopeless and helpless at times. That, coupled with the high volume of meetings he's attended during the last 14 years, has caused Nieters to feel somewhat burnt out professionally.

City council members expressed support for Nieters, complimenting him on how well he worked for the city.

"You're a great asset to the city and I hate to see you go, but congratulations," Councilman Brett Stokes said at the end of last night's meeting.
