About the Metro Township

The Emigration Canyon Metro Township is a Utah municipality. As such it is a governmental entity with general police powers.  It can, within its jurisdiction, create and enforce laws; and it has limited taxing power.  It was created by a vote of the residents of Emigration Canyon in 2015.  The Township is governed by an elected council consisting of five members, one of whom is selected by the others to be the mayor.  The Council is the legislative body of the Township.  The mayor is the chief executive officer of the Township.


The Township has all of the municipal powers available to Utah municipalities under the Utah Municipal Code with the exception of certain taxing powers.  It does not have the power to enact a property tax or municipal energy taxes (sometimes called franchise taxes).


The Township council has the authority to enact laws and ordinances to carry out its responsibilities such as land use and development regulations (zoning). As long as these laws are not inconsistent with the Utah Municipal Code and other state statutes.

UTA Fares are Free on All Services During February

In an effort led by Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and supported by numerous local governments, partner agencies, and businesses throughout the Wasatch Front, UTA fares will be free during the month of February! 


This includes bus, TRAX, FrontRunner, S-Line Streetcar, Ski Bus, paratransit service, the Park City-SLC Connect, and UTA On Demand.

Working Together for Clean Air

Traditionally, February is a very challenging month for air quality along the Wasatch Front. We see the haze in the air. We hope for storms to clear the skies. Public transit is part of the solution to reduce vehicle emissions and improve our air quality.

This February is also a time for celebration. Twenty years ago, Salt Lake City came alive with the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Our public transit system was a critical component in hosting the Olympics, carrying more than 4 million spectators during the 17 days of the Games.

Free Fare February is a great way to combine efforts to improve our air quality and celebrate our Olympic success with transit. All the sponsors are very excited about this initiative and the opportunity to increase awareness in the community about the impact we can have on our air quality by changing our transportation habits.
