Joyce F. Brown
Joyce F. Brown has a strong desire to serve the great community where she grew up, raised her family and now lives. She began serving on the City Council in January 2004.
Joyce was raised in Layton by her parents, Dee and Karma Forbes. She attended Layton schools, graduating from Layton High in 1976. Joyce attended college at Utah State University where she met and fell in love with her husband Stan. They were married in 1978. Joyce and Stan have three children: Nathan, Kristen, and Stacy they also have nine adorable grandchildren. Joyce was involved in the PTA during her children’s school years and was President of the PTA at East Layton Elementary and Layton High School.
Joyce works part-time as a Registered Broker’s Assistant in her husband’s financial planning and investment business and is NASD series seven licensed.
Joyce is committed to attending and participating in the city’s activities, meetings and events. Her council assignments include Mayor Pro tem, Parks and Recreation Commission, Davis County Transportation Board, Utah League of Cities and Towns Legislative Affairs Committee and the Audit Committee.
Joyce believes it is important to continue to provide infrastructure such as Layton Parkway to help citizens move through the city. She also sees the importance of jobs that support families such as those that have been created in Layton City as businesses have been attracted to locate in projects like the East Gate Business Park. Joyce feels that the recreation opportunities in Layton such as the monthly Family Recreation activities and those that have been added with the expansion of Ellison Park, the new Legacy Junior High gymnasium and Legacy Park (which includes an interactive electronic playground), and the city’s completion of the D&RG Trail are great places for families to spend time together.
With a population of approximately 70,000 and an annual budget of more than $50 million, Layton City requires council members like Joyce that provide leadership and direction. This leadership has helped the city weather the recession without a decrease in services or an increase in taxes.
Joyce represents the citizens of Layton with honesty and integrity. She believes that serving the community is more than attending the required meetings, it is being involved and being where the people are. She listens to and represents the citizens of Layton City.
