2020 brings new leaders and a new form of government for the City of West Jordan. In 2017, residents voted to adopt a mayor-council form, or ‘strong mayor’ form of government.
Newly-elected Mayor, Dirk Burton, supports the change saying he’s optimistic about the direction West Jordan is taking.
“As a Councilmember for four years, I’ve long recognized that residents are the city’s customer. That’s why one of the key campaign promises I made was to make our city more responsive the residents – a promise I can live up to as the first Mayor of West Jordan to manage city government on a day-to-day basis,” he said.
