The City of Holladay was incorporated because citizens wanted a government more responsive to their needs than the large Salt Lake County bureaucracy, where many Holladay residents felt under represented-particularly in planning and zoning issues. Holladay's Mayor and City Council are committed to providing excellent services to the city's residents. Municipal services include policeand fire protection, and public works (streets, street lighting and striping, snow plowing, etc.)
So why incorporate? To control the one vital service that can now be done by Holladay's own citizens: planning and zoning. Also, even contracting with the county lets Holladay's elected officials determine what level of service residents will receive and more local control over all other contracted services.
