The beautiful, rural city of Marriott – Slaterville is located in Weber County, just west of Ogden. It was originally two separate areas, Marriott and Slaterville. Marriott was settled in 1849 by Mormon pioneers, and in 1854, it was named after the first permanent settler, John Marriott. The area of Slaterville, named after Mormon Battalion member Richard Slater, was settled in the early 1850s and originally called Mill Creek. Marriot and Slaterville merged and incorporated in 1999. Also in 1999, the House of Representatives designated Marriott – Slaterville as an open space preservation city. As of 2012, the population was around 1,700.
The city of Marriott – Slaterville has a Facebook page to help keep the community involved and informed. Some of the fun annual gatherings include an Easter Egg Hunt, a Fourth of July Celebration, a Halloween Festival, and Breakfast with Santa. The city maintains three attractive parks, as wells as various open-space nature reserves. One of the special annual traditions is the community awards at the end of the year. Four different awards are handed out: the Good Neighbor Award, the Elna Lucas Community Culture/History Award, the H. Orvil Holley Youth Leadership Award, and the Darrell Mecham Outstanding Community Service Award. The city teams up with Harrisville for youth recreation programs.

At West Property Management, we are experienced homeowners and understand the importance of finding good tenants. A problem tenant can be very costly in terms of both time and money, and while no background check can completely eliminate risk, our detailed tenant screening process will substantially lower it. Once a prospective tenant has completed the application and we have verified photo identification, we perform the following checks: national and state background; sex offender, terrorist, and criminal; and credit report with full payment history and credit score. We review any accounts in collections or any judgments filed, check for past evictions, and verify income by either contacting the current employer or procuring copies of tax return and current bank statement if self-employed. We also contact previous landlords about payment history, property conditions, and any nuisance issues. We do everything in our power to ensure your property is rented by good, reliable tenants. A thorough tenant screening is one of the most important things a property management company should provide. We are also accredited with the Better Business Bureau.
