The Provo Municipal Council is responsible for city legislation. As a resident of Provo, you can make a huge difference by attending council meetings, voicing your opinions, and getting involved with local issues.
Meet the Council
Provo’s Municipal Council is made up of seven voting members. Five of the city council members represent specific districts in Provo and are elected by residents living within those district boundaries. Two council members represent the entire city and are selected in a city-wide election. A map of council district boundaries is available here.
Sterling Beck is the district 5 council member representing the neighborhoods surrounding the downtown area. He runs this website to keep district 5 residents informed about local issues and events. Sterling can be contacted any time at 472-3160.
Steve Turley and Laura Cabanilla are the city-wide council members, elected by all of Provo.
Midge Johnson, Sherrie Hall-Everet, Rick Healey, and Cynthia Dayton are council members elected by other districts throughout the city. Current contact information for all of the council members is available on the Provo website.
Council Meetings You May Want to Attend
By attending council meetings, you can stay informed and influence local legislation. These two important meetings are held in the Council Chambers at 351 W. Center Steet:
Municipal Council study meetings are held at 5:30-7:00 p.m. every other Tuesday before the general council meetings. At these meetings, council members discuss city issues amongst themselves. If they decide that an issue warrants action, it will be scheduled for a general council meeting where there is time for public feedback.
Municipal Council meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. every other Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. following the study meeting. During this meeting members of the public are invited to speak about issues and concerns during the Public Comment period at the beginning of the meeting and during any scheduled Public Hearings. During this meeting, the seven council members vote to form city legislation.
If you’re interested in making a difference for Provo, we invite you to get involved and share your ideas with your city council representatives.
Additionally, we have copies of all the documents (agendas included) that the council members receive prior to the meetings. These packets can be quite long, and provide many details prior to votes.
