Utah is a limited “home rule” state via a Grant of Authority provided for in the Utah State Constitution, Article XI, § 4.
“In the United States, home rule refers to the authority of a constituent part of a U.S. state to exercise powers of governance delegated to it by its state government. In some states, known as home rule states, the state's constitution grants municipalities and/or counties the ability to pass laws to govern themselves as they see fit (so long as they obey the state and federal constitutions).” For a list of "Home Rule" states, please see: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_rule_in_the_United_States
“Finally, the constitutional mandate of Article XI, § 4, that the Legislature provide for a uniform system of county government, is not applicable because that provision was amended in 1973 to allow the Legislature to provide for optional forms of county government to be approved by referendum. That provision is not relevant to the instant problem. In any event, it is clear beyond peradventure that a uniform system of government does not require uniform laws within all the various systems of government.”
