Scope and Content

The Brigham City council is responsible for exercising the community's legislative and executive powers (see Utah Code Unannotated , 1992, 10-3-101). The council, which has traditionally met weekly, consists of a mayor and five council members who are responsible for all aspects of town management. The council appoints municipal officials, levies taxes, manages community finances, maintains public services and utilities, regulates business activity, and has carried out many plans and projects for community development and improvement. In addition to city council members, a number of other city officers attend council meetings. The minutes identify those present and summarize the discussion and activity at each council meeting. They are approved and signed by the mayor and city recorder. Copies of many ordinances and resolutions are also included in the minutes.


Chronological according to date of entry.
