Wegener: complaint-based ordinances ‘unconscionable’

Two members of the Utah State University debate team debated the landlord licensing issue on Thursday and one Logan Municipal Council candidate says they did an excellent job of presenting both sides. Tony Wegener, one of four people running for two council seats, says the students were fair in their presentations. On KVNU’s For the People program Thursday night, Wegener said he believes both the park strip restoration project and the landlord licensing proposal were wrong for one reason: the city already has ordinances, but they are complaint-based. “I think that’s just absolutely unconscionable,” Wegener said. “What it does is it forces people to make a complaint. They have to do their own investigation of those who are violating ordinances. They have to gather evidence and they have to present that evidence to Logan City. Why should they have to do that? Why doesn’t the city enforce its own ordinances?” The three other Logan City council candidates include Holly Daines, Steve Stokes and Dean Quayle.
