WELCOME TO AURORA CITY'S WEBSITE!
Aurora City is located in Sevier County, 91 miles south of Provo. Originally settled in 1875, the community was referred to as "Willowbend" because of the pioneers who settled along a big bend on the banks of the Sevier River. The town was incorporated in 1914 and officially became a city in 1982. With a rural pace of life, a close knit community, and the quiet beauty of the surrounding landscape, Aurora has so much to offer! Our website provides residents and visitors with relevant information pertaining to city government, local economy and community services. We will be adding more information in the near future to better serve you. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! Aurora City History
UNOFFICIAL PRIMARY ELECTION RESULTS
Here are the unofficial primary election results for the Aurora City Council :
264 voters submitted ballots or 49.2%
which is very good for a primary election...
Kelly Mason 178 votes
Hal Jensen 104 votes
Jim Harrison 97 votes
Tyson Hansen 50 votes
Wynona Mangrum 46 votes
These are unofficial because there is a potential of more ballots arriving at Sevier County that have been properly postmarked and will be counted. The final tally will occur on Tuesday August 22, 2017 when the Aurora City Council will canvass the election and declare the winners that will move on to the November election.

Ivanna and Damien Stowe have painted some rocks. These rocks will be hidden somewhere throughout Aurora...maybe at the park, or the post office, the church or in your garden. If you find one of these rocks, take a picture or bring the rock to the city office and you will receive a prize!
