The group Alliance for a Better Utah on Tuesday called on Salt Lake County Councilman Michael Jensen to step down from his post on the Utah Inland Port Authority board. The call comes after the release of an investigative report from the Utah Attorney General's office detailing prosecutors' investigation into Jensen's time as Unified Fire Authority's chief, as well as other former fire officials. Prosecutors said the investigation revealed "troubling" behavior — including using taxpayer money for "exorbitant bonuses, reimbursement for personal vacations attached to official travel, purchase of electronic equipment for personal use, and the hiring of close family members" — but resulted in no charges because prosecutors believed criminal convictions would be unlikely.
