Due to the ongoing public health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic and response, the Salt Lake County Government Center has been closed except for essential functions on the orders of the Salt Lake County Mayor.
Consistent with Salt Lake County Council Resolution 5714, approved March 24, 2020, Salt Lake County Council has made preparations to conduct its Council meetings electronically. Because the Salt Lake County Government Center is closed – and in light of state and local public health orders limiting gatherings and workplaces to less than ten persons – the Council cannot provide physical space or facilities for members of the public to attend its meetings for the duration of the public health emergency. Members of the public, including the news media, may utilize the following resources to participate remotely:
- Agendas & Minutes: The Council’s meeting agenda and supporting documentation for each agenda item can be found online at slco.legistar.com at least 24 hours before the scheduled meeting. Minutes for each meeting are regularly uploaded to the same website. Also, the Council will continue to publish its agendas and minutes on the Utah Open Public Meeting Act’s website: Utah.gov/pmn/index.html.
- Public Comment: The Council takes public comment over the phone. Please call 385-468-7480 if you would like to provide comment. You will hear hold music until your call is answered – please don’t hang up. Each individual is given 3 minutes for their comment.
- Audio Live-Stream: The Council audio live-streams their meetings. You can listen along by visiting slco.legistar.com. The audio button to click on will say “In Progress.” There is a short delay of a few seconds.
Due to COVID-19, the District Attorney's office won't be taking walk-in residents for the next few weeks. If you would like to speak with them please call (385) 468-7600 to make an appointment.
