Lindon City was incorporated in 1924.
The City covers an area of approximately 8.56 square miles with 10,130 residents.
The City, under the traditional form of government, consists of a governing body of the Mayor and five Council Members. The Mayor and Council exercise all legislative powers of the City. The Mayor, with the advice and consent of the City Council, appoints qualified persons to serve in the offices of City Recorder and City Treasurer.
The City currently employs approximately 46 full-time employees and 22 part-time employees or 56 full time equivalent employees on staff. This equates to approximately one employee per 180 residents. This is an excellent ratio for a City of its size and is evidence of prudent management.
The City provides the following municipal services: i) water, storm water and sewer utilities, ii) parks and recreation services, iii) building, planning and zoning services, and iv) police services. The City contracts with other municipalities to provide i) fire and emergency services and ii) library services. Natural gas is provided by Questar Gas and electric services are provided by Rocky Mountain Power & Light.
The City has two elementary schools and one junior high school within the City boundary but is served by several elementary, junior high, and high schools in adjoining communities within the Alpine School District. Education is an important factor in northern Utah County and continues to be a governing principle for residents and businesses. The City is in close proximity to both Utah Valley University (32,000 students) and Brigham Young University, a private university serving nearly 30,000 students.
The City is serviced by a variety of state-of-the-art healthcare facilities throughout the valley. Additional world-class medical services through Primary Children’s Medical Center and University of Utah Medical Center located in Salt Lake City are easily accessible. Lifeflight helicopters and personnel provide lifesaving air transport to accident victims and those in need of emergency care to all area hospitals in Utah and Salt Lake Valley.
