Salt Lake County is located in the northern valley of Utah surrounded by the Wasatch Mountain Range on the east and the Oquirrh Mountain Range on the west.
To shore up the remaining community boundaries and tax base, the Legislature authorized most unincorporated-area voters to choose their futures in 2015. All unincorporated townships would become municipalities, but voters in each township could choose whether to make their community a Metro Township or a City. Residents of islands-unincorporated areas surrounded by cities-could vote to either annex or remain unincorporated.
Residents of islands (unincorporated areas) voted to receive their services from the MSD. Some island voters chose to annex and others did not.
The Salt Lake County Council created the MSD in late 2015 under the authorization of the Utah State Legislature. The District began operating in January 2016. The County Council sat as the original Board of Trustees.
One County Council member serves on the GSLMSD Board of Trustees.
Salt Lake County is located in northern Utah. The large valley is located between the Wasatch Mountain Range on the east and the Oquirrh Mountains on the west, covering an area of 807 miles.
