Piute County ordinances were microfilmed at Southern Utah University under the direction of Utah State Archives in January 2002 and processed by Rosemary Cundiff in March 2002. Previously microfilmed copies of Piute County ordinances were deaccessioned in processing because they were less complete and were duplicated in this filming.
