West Jordan Good Landlord Program ready for implementation

(West Jordan) The West Jordan Police Department is expecting to see a decrease in crime, more money in the city’s coffers and better neighborhoods, all with the implementation of the Good Landlord Program, which recently was unanimously adopted by the city council.

“We want a safer and more secure environment for our economy to grow,” said Sgt. Drew Sanders, WJPD spokesman. “[This program] saves the city money and resources through reduced calls for service. The landlords will receive support, training and empowerment to solve their own problems. Tenants and neighborhoods will increase in quality.”

The Good Landlord Program requires participating landlords to run background checks on all potential tenants, evict tenants who create a problem, maintain their properties according to state and city code and take a city-approved landlord training class.
