LaRell David Muir (born 1929) was Mayor of Murray, Utah from 1977 to 1986. During his administration, Murray constructed its present city hall, (essentially renovating Arlington Elementary School). He was noted for increasing Murray's presence in the arts, especially its sponsorship of the Murray Symphony Orchestra. He was also noted for his opposition of annexing then unincorporated Taylorsville, Utah into Murray which would have doubled its population. He was defeated in his re-election bid by Lavar McMillan.
Born in Randolph, Utah, he served in the United States Army and was stationed at Fort Holabird, Maryland. Muir served the city of Murray as its Recorder prior to being elected Mayor. After public service, he served as President of the St. George Utah Temple between 2001 and 2004.
