Scope and Content

Glendale city council meeting minutes summarize the discussions held at council meetings. They indicate the date and place each meeting was held and identify those present. Glendale has a traditional town government which consists of a mayor and four council members who exercise the community's legislative and executive powers (see Utah Code Unannotated, 1991, 10-3-101). The council is responsible for all aspects of community management. The Glendale city council appoints town officials and appropriates their salaries, levies taxes and approves expenditures, provides for municipal elections, and regulates business activity within the community. The council spends much time on maintaining roads and a culinary water works. The council works with the Glendale Irrigation Company to manage irrigation water, and with the neighboring Orderville city council to provide fire and police protection, and maintain a common sewer and city dump. The Glendale council has emphasized youth activities. After the Glendale Elementary School closed (1969), the council helped turn the abandoned building into a civic center. Since 1998 the Glendale city council has worked with other Kane County agencies and communities on issues relating to the Grand Staircase National Monument.
