Scope and Content
This series contains the ordinances and resolutions passed by the Bingham Canyon Town Board (1932-1938) and City Council (1938-1957). These documents are pasted into a scrapbook which also includes proofs of publication. Publication of ordinances is required by state law [see Revised Statutes of Utah (1898), sec. 205; Compiled Laws of Utah (1907), sec. 205; Compiled Laws of Utah (1917), sec. 556; Utah Code (1933 and 1943), 15-6-12; Utah Code (1953), 10-6-12; Utah Code (1953, as amended 1984), 10-3-711]. Included is the text of the ordinance or resolution, date of passage, names of board or council members voting in favor, and certification of passage by the Town or City Clerk. Also included is certification by a local newspaper publisher of publication of the ordinance. Topics include regulation of traffic and parking, budgets, sanitation measures, official salaries, occupational licenses, and other matters within the jurisdiction of the municipal government.
The first volume (1932-1944) is arranged in approximately reverse chronological order. The second volume (1944-1957) is arranged in approximately chronological order. The arrangement for each volume was not strictly followed by the clerk in creating this record.
