Jeff Silvestrini, Mayor , Millcreek City

Before election as Mayor for Millcreek City, (the newest city in Utah and having the distinction as the 10th largest city in this state) Jeff's legal practice experience focused upon real property, zoning, business and health law litigation. He has represented businesses, property owners, insurance companies, and physicians in a range of legal matters. He also advised physicians and medical professionals on regulatory compliance. 

Jeff will help us better understand:

  • The forces of politics in relation to establishing a new city
  • Obtaining funding for physical Facilities, city programs and the difference between programmatic solutions and brick and mortar needs, with integration of City and design professionals experience
  • Controlling costs and keeping taxes down, while maintaining a high level of municipal services
  • Maintaining existing and future historic facilities
  • Making realistic planning decisions that establish the fine balance between future needs, current requirements, and maintaining the feel and character of the area.  This involves carefully planned and executed partnerships with City Leadership, design professionals, contractors and the community at large.
