Phil Rubin

Hideout Town

Two candidates for mayor in Hideout are set to face off in the general election on Nov. 2 and all four Town Council candidates are running unopposed – but it’s not too late for write-in candidates to step up.


The incumbent mayor of Hideout Town, Phil Rubin, has filed to run for another term. According to Hideout Town Clerk Alicia Fairbourne, he filed late in the day on June 7, less than an hour before the closing deadline.


On Thursday night, the Hideout Town Council took another step toward preparing for a June 22 referendum on the town’s proposed annexation of 350 acres that extends into Summit County.


The council of the Wasatch County town authorized Mayor Phil Rubin to launch agreements that will have four different consulting firms study a segment of the proposed development on the acreage.

  Meeting in a work session Tuesday night, the Hideout Town Council responded to a stream of criticism from Monday night’s public meeting about Hideout’s possible annexation into Summit County.  

Council members acknowledged some of the reasons behind the complaints, they also deplored the attacks that took a nasty personal tone, including, reportedly, harassment outside the Mayor’s house.
