Dirk Burton

Term: 2024-2027

Dirk Burton is the 14th Mayor of West Jordan, Utah. Born and raised in neighboring city Kearns, Dirk later moved to West Jordan where he and his wife raised six children. After living in this great city for more than two decades, they now consider West Jordan their permanent home.  

In 2016 Dirk became a Council Member for West Jordan’s fourth district. Being a voice for the people and serving his community pushed him to run for Mayor. In January 2020 Dirk became the City’s first strong Mayor.

When Dirk is not in a committee meeting or working at City Hall – he is promoting community involvement in local scout groups, spending time with his family, and touring West Jordan neighborhoods on his bike or Segway getting to know the residents he loves to serve. 

The Mayor loves to meet with people! Call 801-569-5100 or complete the Mayor contact form on this page to schedule an appointment.
