Tom Callan reportingWest Jordan is debating raising your property taxes, but some residents say the debate is too silent.
The microphones were off when council members considered hiking property taxes. City spokeswoman Kim Wells says that is not unusual for a work session, but she says next time they may open the mics. "Well, we'll certainly look at that now that there's a concern," she said.
But one West Jordan resident says when it comes to taxes, give people a voice at the work sessions. "Taxes are so expensive right now in West Jordan anyway. It's just crazy. They should have had them on so we would know about it," she said.
Another person says the the council give West Jordan citizens some respect by turning the mics on.
