Baseball, hot dogs and apple pie -- we don't just say it, we live it! Kaysville is the type of city people love to call home. An active community where traditions are kept, families are valued, and citizens enjoy a sense of belonging and the spirit of community.
We're uniquely situated and conveniently located "in the middle of everything." Kaysville isn't just a great place to live, it's a great place to do business. Great accessibility and low taxes are just some of the benefits our businesses enjoy. It's obvious why Kaysville has become Utah's Hometown. Come see what all of the fuss is about.

The Kaysville City Master Plan includes evaluations, needs assessment, planning and budgeting for the Operations Center (Public Works, Power Department, Parks & Fleet), Fire Station, Recreation Building, Municipal Center and the former County Library Building.
These facilities range in age from the Library Building built in 1944 to the Operations Center built in 1992. These facilities have not been remodeled, expanded or rebuilt to accommodate the changing needs of the public or current and future staff. However, the Recreation Building is the only facility that has been remodeled/ repurposed as the building previously housed the Kaysville City Fire Station. In general, these facilities are not presently meeting the current and future operational needs of the various city departments and the general needs of the public, and the HVAC and electrical systems are at or near the end of anticipated life cycle, and restrict utilizing current and future technologies.
The City contracted with JRCA Architects to develop a strategic master plan for the Kaysville City Facilities to identify priorities, recommend appropriate development options, and establish preliminary project budgets. Generally the Master Planning included the evaluation of each department’s current and future operation requirements, their existing facilities, delivery of services to the public, and consideration of utilizing current city property necessary for long term facility needs and expansion.
Kaysville City, with the help and sponsorship of Zion’s Bank, is proud to announce our participation this year in the Play Unplugged Program. Every child between the ages of 5 - 12 at all Elementary Schools in Kaysville will be given a lanyard (6,800 total) with instructions on how this program works. The program encourages kids to get out and experience different activities and receive Brag Badges for doing them. The Brag Badges can be picked up at businesses that participate in sponsoring a particular badge that will have the business name and what activity the child did on it. Each business that participates will get to pick out what activity you want to sponsor at a cost of $400 for an unlimited amount of badges to hand out.
Any business that wants to participate in this program needs to contact: https://www.weplayunplugged.com/kaysville.
The business can then pick which badge to sponsor and work directly with Play Unplugged to get your business name on it. Also, before May 9, 2016, each and every Brag Badge your business chooses to sponsor and hand out, will feature your company logo on it for free, all summer long, at no additional charge! (This is a $100 value).
We want you to know how much value the Kaysville City Council and Mayor see in the program for the kids in the community, as well as Play Unplugged helping to boost summer foot traffic for local businesses during the summer.
If you have any questions or want to see a sample Brag Badge, you are welcome to contact Susan Lee 801-497-7006 of the City Council or contact Play Unplugged through their website.

As a member of the City Council, I have a great appreciation for the many employees of the City who work hard to make life comfortable for the citizens of this community. One of my Council assignments is to work with Kaysville Power and Light Company. Frequently, questions are asked regarding our power company. I have asked Power Superintendent Gary Hatch to give an overview. I want to thank Superintendent Hatch and his crew for all they are doing to help with our electrical needs and for taking time to better inform us of items with the Power and Light Company.
Message from Power Superintendent Gary Hatch:
I would like to take this opportunity to discuss a few topics that might be of interest. First of all, there are many reasons for power outages. Two most common causes are weather and animals (birds, raccoons and squirrels). To help reduce weather related outages, an extensive tree trimming plan is being executed. This program helps limit the number of outages from falling tree limbs as well as shorten the amount of time customers are without power when a power outage occurs. To help reduce animal related outages, we are installing insulated covers on overhead transformers. If there is a scheduled outage for the purpose of rebuilding, improving, replacing, upgrading, or due to safety issues, residents will be notified of the date and time this will occur.
Always be prepared in case a power outage occurs, especially if someone in your house has medical issues. Have a plan in place in case the power outage lasts longer than your reserves.
In 2012, the power company purchased a pole tester. This piece of equipment allows us to test the integrity of each pole and then assign it an identification number. We also purchased an infrared camera to help find, identify, and repair problem areas where line loss or inefficiencies could create an issue.
At this time, the older area of Kaysville’s power system is a 4KV. This part of town is undergoing a continual rebuild to upgrade the system to 12KV. Studies are also being performed throughout the system to help break up and balance circuits.
Kaysville City Power and Light continues to investigate new electrical industry technologies. One new technology is Nuscale Power, an emission free generation facility. Information on this facility can be found on the Kaysville City website (www.kaysvillecity.com, then click on Departments, then Power).
Kaysville City Power and Light has and always will strive to keep our power system as reliable as possible.
