Form of Government
Midvale City operates under a six-member council form of government and is a city of the class as determined by Utah law. The city is governed by a six-member council comprised of five council members and a mayor. The mayor votes on each matter where there is a tie-vote of the council; on ordinances that enlarge or restrict the mayor’s powers, duties or functions; and in the appointment or dismissal of a city manager. The mayor serves as the chief executive officer and the city manager serves as chief administrative officer overseeing the day-to-day administrative functions of the city.
The City Council serves as the Board of Trustees for the Redevelopment Agency. The mayor serves as chief administrative officer and the city manager serves as the executive director. The members of the city council act as the governing body of the Agency and City staff provide management support and technical assistance to the Agency.
City Council and Redevelopment Agency Meetings
The City Council generally holds their regular meetings and workshop sessions on the first and third Tuesday of each month in City Council Chambers beginning at 6:30 p.m. The Redevelopment Agency meets in conjunction with the City Council meetings. The workshop sessions are typically held on the third Tuesday of the month. During workshop sessions, the City Council has the opportunity to review and discuss important items, staff projects, and future Council meeting agenda items. The city manager and staff attend to present topics for discussion and to answer questions. Citizens may also be asked by the Council to provide input. The City Council does not take official action during workshop sessions; therefore, audience comments on agenda items are made only at the request of the mayor or council members. For a list of dates or more information visit the Midvale City Recorder's page.
