Heber City is a city in Wasatch County, Utah, United States. The population was 11,362 at the 2010 census. Heber City was founded by English emigrants who were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the late 1850s, and is named after the Mormon apostle Heber C. Kimball. It is the county seat of Wasatch County. The original Heber City town square is located on the west side of main street between Center street and 100 north and currently houses city offices as well as the historic Wasatch Stake Tabernacle and Heber Amusement Hall. The city was largely pastoral, focusing largely on dairy farms and cattle ranching, and has since become a bedroom community for Orem, Provo, Park City and Salt Lake City.
Heber City is currently governed by Mayor David Phillips along with City Council Members Alan McDonald, Robert Patterson, Benny Mergist, Jeff Bradshaw, and Erik Rowland.
Within the city limits are Heber Valley, Old Mill, and J.R. Smith Elementary Schools, Timpanogos Intermediate School, Rocky Mountain Middle School, Wasatch High School, and Wasatch Alternative High School. Additional schools in the Heber Valley are Midway and Old Mill Elementary Schools. All of these schools are part of the Wasatch County School District. Utah Valley University maintains a satellite campus just north of Heber City along the US-40 corridor.
