Building and Zoning

All building permits within the Kanarraville town limits go through the Iron County Building Department after receiving approval from Planning & Zoning and the Kanarraville Town Board.

For questions regarding building and zoning, town ordinances, or to be placed on the Planning & Zoning or Town Board Agendas, please contact Heidi Loveland, Town Clerk at 435-867-1852.

Garbage Disposal

Kanarraville contracts with Enoch City for garbage collection. Garbage pickup is every Thursday, except for Thanksgiving week, in which case garbage will generally be the Wednesday before unless otherwise posted. To prevent damage to the street, please place garbage can on the pavement so the truck is back away from the edge when they make the pickup. If your garbage can is not there when the truck comes, your garbage will not be picked up until the next week. Enoch City WILL NOT make a special trip unless they have missed the whole street. If you notice the garbage pickup was missed on your street, please call Heidi Loveland, Town Clerk at 435-867-1852.

To request another garbage can or if your garbage can needs replacing or repair, call Patti Morris the Water Department Secretary at 435-867-1852.

Tree Program

This program addresses the management of trees within the town’s easements and right-of-ways.  The goal is to establish guidelines for tree maintenance flexibility for property owners.  All trees within the town’s easements and right of ways may be removed for any reason deemed necessary.  However, property owners may assume responsibility for said trees and accept all obligations to maintain and control the trees bordering their property.  This responsibility does not confer ownership of said trees, rather it grants the right to maintain them.  Liability rests with the property owner, but the Town has the authority to remove the trees at any time.  To learn more about this program, or to receive a copy of the Release of Liability, please contact Heidi Loveland at 435-867-1852 or heidi@kanarraville.org. 

Post Office

The Kanarraville Post Office is located at 50 E Center and is open from 10 am-12 pm. This Post Office location is for mail and package drop off and pick-up only.  Pre-paid postage that is already attached to your package, may be dropped off at this location.  No stamps are for sale.  If you need your package weighed, the closest Post Office locations for this service are New Harmony and Cedar City.  For questions about packages mailed to the Kanarraville Post Office, please call 435-586-6701 or 1-800-ASK-USPS.
