Ken Phippen, Mayor of Farr West Elected to Farr West City Council 2015
Re-elected in 2019 Current Service:
I am currently serving on the Farr West City Council

My Current Assignments:
Grants
Technology
Trails
Park Committee
Planning Commission Liaison

We work tirelessly on going through all the city municipal codes updating what's outdated, removing what's unneeded, and clarifying what's confusing.

The update of the General Plan was enhanced by seeking more input from the citizens of Farr West, we had a booth at the Freedom Festival, held an Open House, and a Public Hearing. Public input is important to a solid General Plan. I am a member of the Smith Family Park Committee which is made up of city officials, staff, and most importantly citizens. Our design plans were helpful in presentations

did you know..
There are 4,425 registered voters in Farr West, per the county.
There were 1,959 votes cast. there were 909 votes cast in 2013.
That's a 44.3% participation rate, that's not bad compared to the 33.6% voter turnout county wide. And we know how important every vote was. 😬
Way to go Farr West!

Farr West to get new mayor, Richey edges Martinez in Ogden contest

It starting to feel real, and they found a picture 😬
When he writes ‘He didn’t immediately respond to a query seeking comment.’ well being in a CC meeting is a pretty good reason?

OGDEN — Farr West is on track to get a new mayor. Ken Phippen, a City Council member, had led Mayor Lee Dickemore by four votes when preliminary vote totals were released Tuesday night. He widened his lead in unofficial results released Thursday to 25 votes, 977-952, and is headed to Farr West’s...

This plaza is special to me, it was one of my first projects.
I put together a committee of residents to explore options and ideas. Darren Burnett drew up the design. We raised over $10,000 towards its construction and also some donated labor.
Of all the things I’ve been involved with, of this I’m most proud 🇺🇸
As Veterans Day approaches let’s be grateful if those who served and continue to serve.

Come on Farr West, we can do better than this..  < 20% ?We may not catch Huntsville but can surely go for 50% or more!

Ken Phippen for Farr West Mayor

Here’s a link to an article about local mayoral elections. it’s amazing and sad that so many are uncontested, it’s not how the system should work.

I’m proud and humbled by the opportunity to serve the residents of Farr West and will proudly continue in whatever role you choose for me.

I’m optimistic about our future and will work hard to achieve your goals.

YOUR VOICE WILL BE HEARD !

Our Story

Current Service: I am currently serving on your Farr West City Council. I previously served on the Planning Commission, we worked tirelessly on going through all the city municipal codes updating what's outdated, removing what's unneeded, and clarifying what's confusing. The update of the General Plan was enhanced by seeking more input from the citizens of Farr West, we had a booth at the Freedom Festival, held an Open House, and a Public Hearing. Public input is important to a solid General Plan. I am a member of the Smith Family Park committee which is made up of city officials, staff, and most importantly citizens. Our design plans were helpful in presentations that resulted in over $400,000.00 in RAMP and other Grant funds for the park with hopefully more to come. I am also serving as the city's web & social media administrator, I created and administer farrwestcity.org where citizens have access to news, applications and checklists, the General Plan, and the Municipal Code. I also created and administer Facebook & twitter accounts for the city to better communicate with it's citizens young and old. I do this voluntarily and with little compensation. Previous Service: I served for over 3 years on the Farr West Planning Commission as it's Vice Chairman and actively participated in the creation and adoption of the new General Plan for Farr West City. Prior to moving to Farr West in 2004, I was the president of the Valley Terrace Home Owners Association in Ogden for 10 years. I managed the budget, coordinated projects, collaborated with vendors and contractors. It was like running a small town but on a much smaller scale. Why am I running again? I'm running FOR Farr West City Council. I will always participate in the process as I've shown over the past several years, I'd just like to be in a position where I can help get things done. Ultimately it's the council with leadership of the mayor that make the final decisions on most all proposals brought to the city. Since the adoption of the 2009 General Plan there are 4 follow on plans plus one more added to the 2015 General Plan that were recommended that have not been fully implemented yet. - Economic Development Plan - Transportation Master Plan - Capital Improvement (Common Facilities) Plan - Parks and Recreation Master Plan - Broadband Strategic Plan (new) All plans take time so getting started is important! I have convinced the Planning Chair and he has now assigned each of these to a commission member. This will allow the city to be more proactive than reactive. As a council member I will ensure these stay a priority. If you choose to support me, it will be greatly appreciated!!
