Nibley City is a thriving community of 6,000, located just south of Logan, Utah and nestled in the mountains of Cache Valley. Since the turn of the century, Nibley has experienced rapid growth, averaging more than 300 new residents per year. Nibley boasts two industrial areas on its western edge along US 89/91 that have recently attracted businesses such as Malouf Fine Linens, WiTricity, Campsaver and Stander.
I was born on an Air Force base in Alaska to an Air Force Family. I grew up all around this country, but home was always back here; my Dad is from Garden City and my Mom is from Pocatello. Growing up like that shaped how I view the world, and gave me a great appreciation for public service and community. I'm excited and humbled to be able to serve you as your Mayor, and I'm looking forward to working with you to make a difference.
I'm the second of 13 children. I've lived in 10 states, Guam, and England. I went to BYU where I earned an M.S. in Civil Engineering, and more importantly, met Lesli. We've been married since 1995. In 1998 we moved to Idaho where I worked as a consulting engineer and became licensed as a Professional Engineer. In 2003, we took a job in California, but the pull was too strong and in 2006 we came to Cache Valley to complete a Ph.D. in Bioenergy from USU and this is where we plan to stay. In 2007, I ran for City Council and served from 2008-2012.
We've loved living in Nibley and raising our 6 kids (Jake, Hannah, Layla, Lincoln, Luke, and Asher) here. I've also loved serving as a Scout leader in the community. There are some outstanding young people in this City, and I'm proud to have been associated with them.
As your Mayor, I'm focused on representing the interests of the people of this community, and keeping Nibley great. I'll take the experience and I'll do my best.
This is my Personal Mission Statement:
On my honor, I do my best to do my duty to God, Family, and Country; to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight. I am trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. As a leader and steward I use my gifts, blessings, resources, and talents to provide opportunities to others. I seek to humbly recognize and accept truth and goodness.
Nibley Public Works Director Justin Maughan was honored Water Operator of the year by the Utah Rural Water Association. Maughan was nominated for the award by fellow Cache Valley public works directors for his handling of the city's water contamination event last year.

What are impact fees?
Impact fees are one-time charges imposed by local governments to mitigate the impact new development has on local infrastructure. Residential and business growth requires the City to expand or enlarge our public facilities to maintain the level and quality of service we provide through our water, sewer, parks and road systems. New growth pays for that expansion and enlargement so that all residents can benefit from our facilities and services.
When does Nibley City charge impact fees?
Nibley City charges impact fees upon issuance of a building permit for new residential, commercial or industrial construction. Impact fees are not charged for remodels, accessory buildings or additions, unless the addition is large enough to necessitate changing the size of the water meter.
What impact fees does Nibley City charge?
Nibley City's impact fees can be found here.
Where can I find more information about impact fees?
The Property Rights Ombudsman for the State of Utah is an excellent resource for understanding impact fees. Information can be found at: http://propertyrights.utah.gov/impact-fees/
What are the other fees on my building permit?
In addition to impact fees, building permits will have the following fees:
-Deposit: $1,000 (refundable upon completion of construction, minus any fees for building infractions)
-Water Meter: $700
-Permit/Plan Check Fee: Varies (approximately $1/square foot of the main level, not including the garage)
