City Council Update

• The Council has updated the land use code to include the ability for commercial businesses to utilize more white and other colors in their buildings to comply with franchise requirements. This was asked for by the Neilsen’s Frozen Custard franchise coming into North Ogden.
• The Council has held the Truth In Taxation hearing and approved the final budget for the Budget Year that runs from July 1, 2022 to June 30, 2023. The approved adopted tax rate is 24.5% instead of the 41.55% that was advertised.
• The Public Safety Building is continuing to move forward with an occupancy date for next spring to early summer.
• The Council has approved a new investing policy to allow for some of the city’s reserves to be used to purchase U.S. Treasury Bonds instead of simply relying on the state Public Trust Investment Funds to hopefully generate a few more interest dollars during the year on city reserves.
