Taken for a ride? Taylorsville woman says she got ripped off by a Salt Lake County housing program

(Al Hartmann | The Salt Lake Tribune) Teena Johnson signed up for Salt Lake County’s Green & Healthy Homes Initiative. What she got was a new, leaky thermoplastic membrane roof. She points to a nail that has worked its way upward through the membrane, allowing moisture in.

Teena Johnson got a new roof on her Taylorsville home through a Salt Lake County program, but now her new roof leaks and there is a lien on her house for $16,000.

For the past 18 months, she has unsuccessfully sought redress from Salt Lake County’s Green & Healthy Homes Initiative; partner Habitat for Humanity; and a private-sector contractor, JR Remodeling.

“I didn’t have the money to get a new roof and I was worried about water damage,” she said. “Then I heard about this program and I became a victim of the program.”

SALT LAKE CITY — A bipartisan group of Utah lawmakers unveiled plans Thursday to eliminate Utah’s sales tax on groceries, provide birth control for poor women and tackle the gender pay gap — proposals that could be a tough sell in the Republican-dominated Legislature where leaders say the costs of social programs and tax credits and exemptions already have the potential to bust budgets.
