John P. Clay says if he’s elected mayor of Logan the laws and ordinances in Logan City will be enforced. Clay, one of three men challenging incumbent Mayor Randy Watts, says soon after retiring here seven years ago the home he purchased had been poorly built. Clay says no one has been willing to make things right. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Clay said he’s not the only one with complaints. “After I raised the issue and said I was trying to do something about it, then others have come forward and said their houses have slid a little bit down the mountain side, they have cracks in their house, walls are pulling away from the ceiling,” Clay said. “One person said they had a hole in the bathroom floor. When they got out of the tub their foot went through the floor.” The retired engineer, who has a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania, says people need to know the laws and building codes and they need to be strictly enforced. Clay is running mainly to make sure Logan City enforces its own building codes and he claims the city has immunity and cannot be sued. He opposed the Park Strip Restoration Act but goes along with a proposed landlord licensing program. Clay supports the arts and would like to see downtown Logan rejuvenated.
