Council Member Alden Farr

I grew up in the Ogden area. I attended Weber State and graduated from the University of Utah. I worked in the electric utility industry in Salt Lake City before accepting a position with Brigham City Corporation in 1993 in the electric department. After a 16 year career in the utility industry I became a licensed financial advisor. I am currently affiliated with Raymond James financial Services and have an office in Brigham City.

I had the opportunity to serve on the Brigham City Council from 2004 to 2007 and served on a number of committees. I have been serving on the Boys and Girls Club board for a number of years and volunteer monthly for meals on wheels. With the new appointment to serve on the council, I hope to provide input that will continue to allow Brigham City to remain a great place to live and to serve the citizens in whatever capacity I am asked to serve. Brigham City has been a wonderful place to live and raise 4 children.
