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.

and Snow Removal Reminders

14.20.105 Placing Snow Upon Highway Prohibited. It is unlawful for any person removing snow, ice or other material from a sidewalk or driveway to place or deposit said snow, ice or other material upon any county road or highway in such a manner as to interfere with the proper use of the same or in such a way as to obstruct travel or to endanger property or persons upon same. (Ord. 1097 § 1, 1990)

  • When removing snow, please do not shovel into the street. Instead, shovel the snow into your landscaped areas.
     

  • Vehicles parked on the road can prevent the snowplow crews from clearing the snow.
     

  • Let's help each other out when needed and ensure we have a safe community.
