Welcome to the Town of Manila, Utah
Follow Us on FaceBook
With only a 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 with cedar, juniper, aspen and pine laden mountains rising to the south, and scenic desert formations rising to the north. Tucked comfortably against the hillsides, Manila rests on a valley which quietly overlooks the immense beauty of the Flaming Gorge Reservoir.
The Mayor and Council members of Manila welcome you to our town and we invite you to stay as long as you would like, hoping your visit is filled with lasting memories... Read more about our wonderful community...

This Month in Manila:
Weed Spraying: Daggett County is seeking input to effectively allocate weed spraying on private land. If you have interest helping facilitate weed control on your property, contact Ned Brady at 307-871-4043. A questionnaire and completion instruction may be obtained at Manila or Daggett County offices.
Conservation Grants: The Conservation District is offering three (3 ) $1,000 grants for the purpose of public conservation and natural resources projects. Project examples include public beautification, water quality improvement, erosion control, youth projects, tree planting among many other eligible projects. Applications may be obtained at Manila and County offices with a deadline of May 6th for submission.
AG Protection Area: Daggett County is seeking proposals for creating agriculture protection areas. Proposals may be submitted by application with the Daggett County Clerk. Contact Vicky McKee for information.
Water Shed Removal: Many have asked why Manila is removing the two decades old water shed source located just west of the new high school addition. Although hundreds of people, local citizens, tourists, and visitors, without water access use the water shed yearly, Manila Administration has no ability to save the water source. The school district superintendent and the school board have demanded the removal declaring it is in the way. The shed is on district property and will be reluctantly removed even though it will deprive users of a water source and ends a very popular tradition.
Memorial Day Holiday: The Manila Office and Landfill will be closed for the holiday on Monday May 27th. Both will reopen on Tuesday 28th and Manila curbside household waste pickup will be accomplished that day.
Manila Fire Department - Safety is Paramount
Fire Meetings: April 2013 meetings will be scheduled for Tuesday 9th at 6:00 P.M. and 23rd at 6:00 P.M. Agendas will include station business, continuation of training, and other subjects as addressed.
Training: The live fire exercise attended by available firefighters was a learning experience. Basically it confirmed the fact that responders have a very short time period to gain control of a trailer fire before it is consumed. The attack seems to be one of urgency and as much effort expended as possible in the short term. We also will be scheduling an exercise focused on extrication with a vehicle currently at the Manila Landfill.
Equipment: We have expended the remainder of the grant funding previously gotten. Among the items included are emergency and disposable blankets for use when dealing with a variety of circumstances and victims. There has not been word received on the Federal Access truck Manila requested.
