Town of Stockton

Mark moved to Tooele in 1993 to work for the Tooele Army Depot North Area, where he managed the Groundwater Treatment Facility. He then moved to Stockton in 2006, establishing roots in the Town when he moved into his newly built home in 2007. Soon after, he volunteered to be on the Stockton Town Planning and Zoning Commission where he served as a member and as Chairperson for well over a year. In 2008 he was appointed to the Stockton Town Council and in 2009 Mark was elected as Mayor, taking office in January of 2010.

For the past 36 years Mark has worked in the field of water treatment including the processes for water/wastewater, industrial waste and hazardous waste. He has maintained his Utah Water Treatment License(s) since 1993. Through his knowledge and hands on approach, the Town of Stockton Water System was awarded “Most Improve Water System” in the State of Utah in 2016 by Rural Water Association. In addition, the wastewater system was awarded “Most Outstanding Wastewater Service” in the State of Utah, by Rural Water Association. Mark enjoys helping the residents of Stockton.

Under his tenure as Mayor, Mark has had the opportunity to calibrate Stockton’s 150th Anniversary at which the Town commemorated a Town Welcome sign, enjoyed professional fireworks, history sessions and guest speakers. He was also instrumental in the installation of a complete sewer system, upgrading of many areas of the water system, and open a community garden area. He also directed the reinstitution of an annual Stockton Day Celebration to include a parade, children’s events, vendors, food, car shows, and most of all a lot of fun.

His goal as Mayor has been to improve the infrastructure, quality of life, and take care of the residents of the Town of Stockton.
