Complaints Regarding Elected Officials
The City of West Jordan’s Ethics Ordinance allows for a process of an “Ethics Complaint” to be filed against the Mayor or another City Council Member under certain circumstances. An Ethics Complaint requires that witnesses and evidence be provided that proves the violation of one or more ethics laws or other legal duties by a City Council Member. Three qualified Complainants must sign the Complaint and then present their case at a confidential hearing (closed to the public). The Complaint must be kept confidential. An incomplete Complaint or one which does not state at least one actionable violation may be dismissed without a hearing being held.
Any false statements or breach of privacy/confidentiality regarding the Ethics Complaint process will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
For more information, you may pick up (in person) an Ethics Complaint form and return it (in person), during regular office hours, to the following office:
