Ordinances by Parowan (Utah)( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

These ordinances document the legislative functions of the Parowan city council and comprise the municipal code by which the city's officials and inhabitants conducted their daily business. Parowan's original 1851 charter authorized the city council to "make, ... and execute all such ordinances, ... as they may deem necessary for the peace, benefit, good order, regulation, convenience, and cleanliness of said City, - for the protection of property therein, from destruction by fire or otherwise; and for the health and happiness thereof" (Laws and Ordinances of the State of Deseret, 1850-1851). Both the city's reincorporation in 1868, and their designation as a third class city (at least by 1888) reinforced this mandate. The ordinances primarily concern maintaining law and order; guarding public health; administering water use and development; creating and maintaining public improvements; licensing, taxing, and regulating businesses, trades, and professions; regulating commodities and dangerous substances; abating nuisances; controlling domestic animals; conducting elections; creating municipal offices and departments; appointing public officials; setting salaries; and controlling city finances. Soon after 1900, the ordinances reflect the city's accommodation to modern technological improvements. The twentieth century ordinances frequently relate to the construction and operation of city-owned electric power plants and other public utilities such as water, and sewer systems (including setting rates and collecting payments); the issuance of bonds for public development projects; the granting of franchise to private utility companies (such as for telephone and gas); and providing for and regulating automobile traffic
