City Manager David R. Brickey
From providing utility services like water, sewer, and trash collection to building roads and storm drains to protecting lives and property with police and fire service – there are many who work hard to keep our City running smoothly. The City of West Jordan has about 400 full-time and 100 part-time employees (most of whom are crossing guards) who work diligently to provide exceptional service that directly impacts our residents' quality of life. These employees are spread among the City’s departments. The city has about four employees per 1,000 residents. The goal is to provide quality programs and service to our residents and business community as efficiently as possible.
Council/Manager Form of Government
The city operates under the Council/Manager form of government. The City Manager is the appointed Chief Executive Officer and is responsible for implementing council policy and overseeing the city’s day-to-day operations. The City Manager is an at-will employee of the City Council and is responsible directly to that seven-member body. He directs the staff support of the City Council’s policy-making role, provides evaluation and analysis, negotiates with private and governmental entities, and responds to the needs and concerns of community groups and individual citizens.
