Scope and Content

The governing body of each Utah municipality exercises its legislative powers through ordinances (Utah Code Unannotated, 1991, 10-3-707). The first ordinance in this series, passed in 1949, deals with annexing additional property into the city. The next ordinance, passed in 1976, is an ordinance adopting revised codified ordinances for Paragonah. Thereafter, included ordinances address a number of issues such as curfews, elections, street addresses, waste dumping, misdemeanors, dogs, traffic regulation, sales tax, water supply protection, flood damage protection, recreational vehicles, youth homes, and cable television.
