State sanctions 125 contractors in Salt Lake, Davis counties
In the past 12 months, 103 Salt Lake Valley construction workers or firms were disciplined by the state.
The state Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing (DOPL) sanctioned the construction companies, electricians, plumbers and others in the construction trades.
The violations ranged from financial irresponsibility to not having a person qualified to do construction work. Sanctions include public reprimands, probation and revocation of licenses.
Salt Lake City had the most: 30 individuals and companies sanctioned. It was followed by West Jordan, where 16 were sanctioned.
Taylorsville had the fewest, with two sanctioned between December 2011 and November 2012. Park City, which is in Summit County but is included in the City edition of Close-Up, had three.
In Davis County, 18 companies and people were sanctioned by DOPL. Layton had the highest number, with seven. It was followed by West Point, with three.
Bountiful, Centerville, Clinton, Kaysville, North Salt Lake and Woods Cross each had one person or company sanctioned.
The data were compiled by UtahsRight.com for a weekly series in The Salt Lake Tribune's Close-Up section highlighting information gleaned from public databases. The purpose is not to provide analysis of the data, but to provide raw numbers so the public can analyze the data themselves for their own purposes.
UtahsRight.com, the data website for The Salt Lake Tribune, conducts an ongoing statewide quest for district court information and other public information, including salaries of public employees and restaurant inspections, using public records requests made under the state's Government Records Access and Management Act, commonly known as GRAMA.
