Complainant Information
Tooele City asks for complainant information for several reasons:
(1). We know the complaint is from a Tooele City resident or property owner;
(2). We can realistically track the number of complaints;
(3). We can reduce the number of "vindictive" complaints and concentrate of improving the City.
