Community Preservation Department

The Code Enforcement Division is here to serve the best interests of the community acting under the authority and direction of the West Jordan City ordinances.  Code Enforcement officers work collaboratively with residents and business owners to resolve ordinance violations. We encourage neighbors to talk to one another first and seek a resolution before involving the city or police and formalizing the process. When direct requests do not work or are not possible, submit the Code Enforcement Request form below. Some issues can be resolved easily while others take more time or require formal letters, notices, and a lengthy legal process. Code Enforcement officers are also available to meet with residential and business groups in an effort to increase awareness and understanding of ordinance requirements. For a better understanding of the process, read the 

Code Enforcement Brochure or visit the FAQ page.

Noise
The noise ordinance is regulated by Salt Lake County Health Department.

In Salt Lake County, the health department works with local law enforcement agencies to enforce the county’s noise regulation.

In general, the noise regulation prohibits loud noise at night between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. The regulation also sets limits for extremely loud noise during daytime hours.

Certain activities and situations are exempt from the noise regulation, such as government-operated snow removal activities and construction work that receives a temporary noise permit from the health department.

To report loud noise from a party, from fireworks outside of designated holidays, or from another unusual circumstance, contact the West Jordan police, at 801-840-4000 (do NOT call 911 unless it is a life-threatening emergency).

To report a barking dog, contact West Jordan Animal Services, 801-282-3951.
