Scope and Content

The Enoch city council is responsible for exercising the community's legislative and executive powers (see Utah Code, Unannotated, 1992, 10-3-101). Council minutes summarize the discussion of issues before the council and describe the activities of council members and actions taken by the council. Minutes identify the place and time of meeting and name those present. The council, which meets twice monthly, is responsible for all aspects of city management, such as appointing city officials and setting their salaries, levying taxes and managing city finances, maintaining public services and utilities, and regulating activity within the city. Enoch was originally incorporated (1966) to facilitate the establishment of a municipal water system in several very small communities. Maintaining municipal water has been a significant point of city council discussion. Community clean up, including trash pick up, and animal control have also been ongoing concerns of the council. Enoch, traditionally a rural area just north of Cedar City, sustained significant growth during the 1980s and 1990s because of subdivision development. The city council has accommodated this growth by expanding municipal services, by expanding roads and installing appropriate traffic signs, and by annexing subdivisions. The city council has established and maintained parks and hiking trails at Old Enoch Park and Old Spanish Trail, where the trail of Father Escalante passes through Enoch. In 1998 the city council adopted an official city logo.
