Mayor & City Council


Eagle Mountain City is a Six-Member Council form of government with the Mayor serving as one of the members.

The Mayor is the chief executive officer of the City and administers the budget. He sets the agenda and presides over City Council meetings, but casts a vote only in the event of a tie, whether to appoint or dismiss the City Administrator, or on an ordinance that enlarges or restricts his powers, duties, or functions. It is the Mayor’s responsibility to execute bonds, notes, contracts and written obligations as required on behalf of the City. The Mayor acts as the City’s chief ceremonial officer and represents the City in its external affairs. The Mayor also makes appointments to council advisory boards and commissions, with the advice and consent of the City Council.

The Eagle Mountain City Council has five members. Council members are elected at large, serve four-year terms, and are responsible for the exercising of the City’s legislative powers. To view additional information about the Mayor and Council Members, click on their photo.

I was born in Puerto Rico to a Puerto Rican father and a mother from a small town in Iowa. Life was always interesting in the Rivera household. My father was in the Air Force so I lived in many places growing up, including Wyoming; Oklahoma; Azores, Portugal; and Aviano and Naples, Italy. I graduated from high school in Naples, Italy and moved to Provo to attend BYU on a Kimball scholarship. In 1989, I graduated cum laude with degrees in International Relations and Spanish. I met my husband, Lincoln, my senior year. We married, finished school and moved to Canada where my husband taught in the high school where he grew up. We lived in Canada for ten years and had four children. We moved our family to Utah so Lincoln could pursue a career in Systems Administration. We lived in Provo for a few years, and then sixteen years ago, we purchased a home in Eagle Mountain. I became very interested in city government because at the time the city was in crisis. I became very involved in the community, volunteering at the schools and library and then running for city council in 2005 for the first time, losing by less than thirty votes. Undeterred, I continued attending council meetings and learning all I could. I ran again in 2007 and was elected. After serving for two terms, I took a break and focused on other endeavors, including my new grandson and working for the city library.

Running for city council again was a difficult decision for me. When I completed my term, I felt I was done. However, with Mayor Pengra and Adam Bradley not seeking reelection, I felt the city needed my experience. My understanding of city code, city government processes, and budgets will be invaluable. Communication is also important, and I have a strong track record of being responsive to residents. I was the council member that everyone counted on to always answer emails and phone calls. When residents had specific concerns about a site or a park, I met them on site to discuss their concerns and work for solutions. As your council member, I commit to be responsive to your emails and phone calls, meet with you and discuss your concerns when asked, and hold quarterly town hall meetings to keep you informed, hear your concerns, and discuss solutions. I have raised my family in Eagle Mountain, and I want to serve you.

I was born and raised in West Valley City, UT. At a young age I discovered a love for technology and media. I enjoyed playing Volleyball in junior high and high school, and worked part-time throughout high school while still remaining accomplished in school. After high school, I spent two years as a missionary for my church in Milwaukee, WI where I met my wonderful wife, Adelle. We dated when we returned home and were married in 2008.

I studied both Information Technology and Digital Media, culminating in graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s of Science in Digital Media from Utah Valley University. While working for a small IT company for nearly a decade, I transitioned from implementations into software development. I currently develop .NET software for a small company that handles inventory management for Ford and Lincoln dealers across the country.

My hobbies include: playing video games with my boy, playing guitar, shooting, and politics.

My wife, Adelle, and I have lived in Logan, West Valley, and Kearns, before settling in Eagle Mountain in July of 2014. We have one little boy, Levi.

Adelle and I were drawn to Eagle Mountain because of the tight-knit community feel as well as the suburban/rural planning-style which offers both the conveniences of everyday life and the opportunity of being removed from the big city. I am pleased to serve as a council member and to work with residents, other elected officials, staff, and applicants to help keep our city the amazing community it is.

My philosophy is to ensure the smallest, most efficient government possible while ensuring each city department is able to function the best it can within its purview. When something can be done better and cheaper in the private sector, it should be.

One of the driving motivators for me is the desire to guarantee Eagle Mountain remains a robust community that continues to value open space, a variety of unique lifestyle options, and follows a feasible, but unparalleled way of life; we are and should be a vibrant self-sustaining community with a small-town feel. Eagle Mountain is not West Valley, Provo, or any other city in Utah, it begs to differ. Eagle Mountain is unlike any other community in Utah and I want it to remain that way as the city transitions through the inevitable growth and change we are already experiencing.

Always feel free to contact me with suggestions, concerns, or even just to get to know me better.

I have lived in Eagle Mountain for six years but it has always felt like home to me.  My childhood was spent in Lehi enjoying all that it had to offer including city celebrations and swimming at the Lehi and Saratoga pools.  I spent a lot of time on the backroads of Lehi, Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain sledding, riding bicycles and motorcycles and learning to drive.  During my adult years, I have lived in American Fork; Provo; Amarillo, Texas; Portland, Oregon; Cedar Hills; and now Eagle Mountain.  I have liked discovering the unique features of the places where I have lived and each holds fond family memories.  I am now enjoying Eagle Mountain with my four children, two sons-in-law, and my six grandchildren that live here.

I spent most of my young adult years raising my four children and working for a local manufacturing company.  My career has been challenging at times but has also provided many wonderful opportunities, experiences and relationships.  I have enjoyed being a part of the leadership team, working through challenges, and feeling satisfaction in the shared success of our endeavors.

As my children have gotten older, I have been able to branch out and return to school in pursuit of a degree in political science and sociology. As much as I have enjoyed my classes and learning in general, the highlight of my education was my internship with the state legislature.  It was inspiring to see politicians and state employees working so hard to do what they could in 45 short days to make our state a little better.  When the session was over, I committed to do what I could to make a difference here at home and decided to run for city council.

I didn’t expect to enjoy campaigning but it was a lot of fun to work with my family and have an opportunity to get to know residents from all areas of the city.  I appreciate the friendship and support you have shown to me and look forward to serving you on the city council.   I want to work with you to make our city the best it can be and welcome your concerns and suggestions.  I am excited to be part of a city with so much potential and opportunity and I am eager to have an impact on its growth and development.

I ran for City Council to advocate for your voice and to see that your vision of our future is implemented. I recognize that development and growth are and will continue to come to our city. Frankly, we need that growth to encourage economic opportunities and to increase our tax base. I believe that we can manage this growth in a responsible and sustainable way in order to balance the need to grow with the desire of our residents to live a rural, suburban lifestyle.

I support a balanced rural approach to residential development. Because of our geographic location and the volume of undeveloped land in our city, we are uniquely situated to offer a lifestyle that is in contrast to the more urban and metropolitan cities of the Wasatch front. I intend to protect that lifestyle. I am an advocate for increased road standards, which means increasing the width of public roadways and seeing that necessary road ways are planned, funded and constructed in a more timely way. This will help to create better ingress, egress, and parking standards for residents.
