Midvale City population is over 33,000. Average attendance to city council meetings? Two. 

Live online participation isn’t much higher, though in days following the meetings, views average 150. 

Midvale government streams all City Council, Municipal Building Authority, Redevelopment Agency, Zoning Commission and Planning Commission meetings live on Facebook which are available to watch anytime afterward. Occasionally other informative videos are posted. 

City Council meets bimonthly, the first and third Tuesdays beginning at 7 p.m. The Redevelopment Agency meets immediately following City Council. Other meetings are as needed.

“Midvale City is committed to transparency and encourages citizen engagement,” Public Information Officer Laura Magness said.
