Scope and Content

The board of county commissioners in each county is authorized by law to pass any ordinances necessary to provide for the protection, prosperity, comfort and convenience of the county and its inhabitants (Utah Code, Annotated, 1953, 17-5-77). Piute County ordinances include such things as the licensing businesses, registering dogs, imposing taxes, establishing subdivisions, and providing franchises. Ordinances passed since 1983 have not been kept separately, but are incorporated as part of the minutes of the meeting at which they were approved.


Chronological by date enacted.

Research Note

Later ordinances are accompanied by supporting documents, such as correspondence and copies of the ordinance as published in the Richfield Reaper.

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.
