What We Do
Our Department handles two main areas of administration:
Employment and Hiring
We advertise job openings, screen and review applications and set up interviews with prospective employment candidates.

Our Department also mediates workplace disputes, including any of the following topics:
- Sexual misconduct claims
- Retaliatory action claims
- Discrimination claims
- Compensation complaints
- Personal conflicts
We offer City employees a complete benefits package including affordable medical, dental, and vision insurance. Each full-time employee also receives a $100/month to help with insurance premiums or medical expenses. In addition, we offer $50,000 in life insurance paid for by the City, paid sick leave, vacation and holidays. We participate in the Utah Retirement System for a pension and offer a 2% match into a 401K.
