A Little History of Brian Head's Government

Brian Head was incorporated on March 12, 1975 and will soon be celebrating our 44th Birthday in 2019.  The town was originally created as a Mayor Council form of government, but in 1988, the citizens decided to vote on a Council Manager form of government which is our current form of government.  The Council Manger form of government is identified as the Council has the legislative power and the City/Town Manager has the administrative power and runs the day to day operation of the town.  The Mayor votes the same as the Council Members, but is able to perform cermonies and is the Chair of the Council meetings.  The Council - Manager form of government was repealed by Utah State law in 2007, but those communities which were a Council Manager form of government will continue as such or until they vote for another type of government.

Brian Head Town Services

Brian Head Town serves the citizens and the community by providing fire, police, water, sewer, police, trash collection, road maintenance, snow removal, motorized and non-motorized trail systems, along with many other government services.  Each Department (Administration, Public Safety & Public Works) is responsible for ensuring the safety and welfare of the Town's citizens and guests.

Brian Head is also a "Resort Town" which caters to the outdoor enthusiast.  The Town continually works toward improving trail systems of all types (motorized and non-motorized).  Brian Head Town is focused with working with other state and federal agencies in providing multiple recreational opportunities for the public.

We continually strive to provide public services above and beyond the typical government services and are here to offer assistance in working with Special Event Coordinators that are hosting their events in Brian Head.  We realize that Brian Head is one of those unique "Mountain Resort Towns" that stands apart from other communities.  Brian Head has the capability of providing a unique experience to the guest who visits Brian Head.
