Welcome to Manila, Utah
Home of the Flaming Gorge
Manila Utah, a short three hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Salt Lake City, Manila exists as a small, quiet community offering a completely unique experience. The valley opens wide at your feet and the pollution free evening skies are filled with stars that seem almost within reach. In winter, the valley is surrounded by snow laden mountains, providing breath taking views. A multitude of wild animals including deer, antelope, rabbit, fox, bobcat, and the occasional mountain lion, share Manila with the local population. Whatever you desire in outdoor adventure, you are bound to find it here within the cedar, juniper, aspen and/or pine covered mountains rising to the south, and scenic desert formations fading into the northern horizon. Tucked comfortably against the hillsides, Manila rests on a valley which quietly overlooks the immense beauty of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
We welcome you to our town and invite you to stay as long as you would like, hoping your visit to Manila Utah will be filled with lasting memories.

October 2017 Newsletter
The Autumn weather came quickly upon us this year. We’ve had a lot of rain, some snow and the leaves are starting to change! Don’t forget Halloween is coming up--please be alert and aware of our little “Trick or Treaters” on Tuesday, October 31st.
Sewer Improvement Project: The Mayor went before the Community Impact Board (CIB) on September 7, 2017, to ask for funding regarding numerous problems the Town has been experiencing with the oldest part of the wastewater system with 30-40 years of deterioration. The project area consists of concrete jointed pipes where plant root intrusion has become a major problem. In addition, most of the water currently conveyed through this area is by ground water infiltration; as a result, the capacity of our sewer lagoons is being greatly affected. This project area serves the older part of town where many full-time residents live.
This project is too large for Manila to manage without adequate funding. I am pleased to report that the Community Impact Board offered the Town of Manila a favorable funding package. The total cost of this project will be $1,256,000.00. CIB gave the Town of Manila a 50/50 Grant/Loan split for 30 years with a 2.5% interest rate. Without the help from CIB we would not be able to afford this necessary project. We will start the wastewater improvement project in the spring of 2018. If you have questions please feel free to contact the Town Office.
Notice of Cancellation of Election: On Oct. 12, 2017 the Manila Town Council will adopt Resolution 10-12-17 cancelling the 2017 Town of Manila election. This is due to each municipal officer candidate being unopposed.
Advance Notification: The Town Office will be closed Thursday Oct. 26 and Friday Oct. 27 for Clerk’s training. Payments can still be made online, mail, or dropped in the outside slot. If building permits are needed they are available on the town website: manilautah.com.
Landfill Winter Hours Coming Soon: Currently the landfill is open each Monday from 9:00 A.M. to Noon, and Saturdays from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. During the winter (November 1st to April 1st) the landfill is open every Monday from 9:00 A.M. to Noon and on the first Saturday of each “winter” month from 9:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M.
Stop in at the Manila Town Office throughout the month of October and pick up a Halloween Treat.
Have a delightful Autumn season!
Mayor Gretchen Northcott
