Scope and Content

According to Utah law the governing body of each municipality shall exercise its legislative powers through ordinances. The governing body may pass any ordinance to regulate, require, prohibit, govern, control or supervise any activity, business, or condition authorized by law. (Utah Code, 1988, 10-3-701-702). Ordinances relate to public utilities, city departments and officials, city finances, crimes and nuisances, business licenses, zoning and building codes, etc.



Research Note

From incorporation to 1977 Brigham City ordinances were kept in numbered books. Resolutions were also included in the first book. Since 1977 ordinances have simply been filed consecutively. Early ordinances are accompanied by documents showing proof of publication. Beginning in about 1990 related documents, such as zoning maps, are filed together with relevant ordinances.
