DATED THIS 15th Day of August, 2019, Paula Melgar, City Recorder


On May 24, 2019, an application for a citizen’s initiative (the "Application") was filed with the office of the Cottonwood Heights city recorder. As explained below, an "initiative" is a new law proposed for adoption by the public through a petitioning and verification process which, if it successful, can result in the new law appearing on an upcoming ballot for approval or rejection by the voters. The initiative process is governed by Utah state law, which specifies the exact steps, standards and timetables which must be followed by both the proponents of the initiative and the governmental entity. 

If this initiative process ultimately is successful under the applicable state statutes, then it is anticipated that the proposed new law will be included on the ballot for the municipal general election scheduled for November 5, 2021. The timing of the election is, again, a function of state law. 

Utah state law governing the initiative process provides that (a) the citizen "sponsors" of the initiative may provide a written argument in favor of the initiative, (b) the city may provide a written argument against the proposed initiative, and (c) the city's election officer (here, the city recorder) then compiles, publishes and publicly distributes a written information pamphlet which contains the Application, the "for" argument, the "against" argument, and a fiscal/legal impact statement prepared by the city's budget officer and attorney. Those items follow as part of this information pamphlet. 

If you have any questions regarding this citizens’ initiative, please contact me at 801-944-7021 or To view the complete pamphlet, click here
