Lehi City municipal offices are housed in new facilities. The city also boasts a new public library and senior citizens complex and a public safety building, both built in 1989. In addition to one of the finest culinary water systems in the state (a $3.74-million lead-free piping system, installed in 1989), the entire town is serviced by a pressurized irrigation system which was completed in 1990. Lehi's power collection and distribution system, the city's greatest single source of revenue, has been a boon to the community since 1964. At that time, city officials signed a long-term contract to purchase power from the Intermountain Consumer Power Association.

"Lehi is a good place to live," has been the community's official slogan since 1911. In addition to a safe, quiet, family-oriented environment, the town offers such recreational opportunities as Saratoga Resort to the southwest, Wines Park, Willow Park, the local Olympic-size swimming pool, Veteran's baseball park, Heritage Theatre, and the world-famous Lehi Roundup rodeo, which for the past half-century has continually drawn top cowboys from all over America.

See: Richard S. Van Wagoner, Lehi: Portraits of a Town (1990); Lehi Centennial Committee, Lehi Centennial History 1850-1950 (1950) which includes the 1913 History of Lehi written by Hamilton Gardner.
