Open City Hall is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in Open City Hall is voluntary. The responses in this record are not necessarily representative of the whole population, nor do they reflect the opinions of any government agency or elected officials.

Your answers will NOT be saved

This is the form that was used to collect responses. It's here so you can try it and see how it worked when the topic was open.

The topic is now closed, and anything you enter into this form will not be saved.

Sign in and be yourself

Sign in and let others know who you are and what you think. You can sign in now or after you submit your response. You'll be able to read your response on this website and change it if you change your mind.

Open City Hall has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Open Town Hall will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Open Town Hall will just share your response with Provo City Council staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on Open City Hall). Registration is free.

The Provo City Council has contracted with Open Town Hall to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the Provo City Council restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Open Town Hall enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Open Town Hall uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet the Provo City Council guidelines for civility, Open Town Hall uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Open Town Hall will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the Provo City Council to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on Open City Hall, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Open Town Hall is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Open Town Hall is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The Provo City Council offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

OpenGovl is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. The Provo City Council has contracted with OpenGov to administer Open City Hall.

The parade float is used to promote Provo City at local events. One risk of not putting a float in parades for surrounding communities is that they may keep their floats out of the Freedom Festival parade. 

2009 float   2011 float       2012 float   2014 float

Over the past five years Provo City has spent between $4,800 and $11,000 a year to design, refresh, and operate the float. The cost includes a contract with a local float design company, paying a driver, fuel, and parade entry fees.
