Fall is here and with fall comes leaves. The foliage is certainly beautiful as it brings a virtual kaleidoscope of color in an ever-changing landscape. That beauty will slowly dissolve into piles and piles of work. As you work to clean up your yards we will be working diligently to try and keep the storm drains clear. Please do your part by keeping the leaves out of the gutters. If you have a storm drain in front of your property, please keep an eye on it. If you are able please help keep it cleaned out. If you are not able and notice that it is becoming clogged, we request that you call the city office and inform them of the situation. (801)782-8529. We will try to get someone out as quick as possible to clean it out.
Road work season is coming to a close. Thanks for your patience. It is winding down for two reasons. First is the weather, it is getting too cold to lay asphalt and second is money. We work diligently to prioritize the needs of our streets to most efficiently and effectively use the road fund money. This year we were able to partner with North Ogden City to resurface Pleasant View Drive from the East City limit to 600 West. This saved both cities money allowing us to do more projects with the limited amount of money we had.
As I mentioned last year, and I believe that it is again a timely reminder, my wife’s favorite and my least favorite holiday is fast approaching. Halloween is a scary holiday. Scary for many because of the ghosts, ghouls, monsters and little imps. Scary to me because of the potential danger to our children. Please be proactive in their safety. Make sure they are visible to vehicles and try to keep them off of the streets and on the sidewalks. If you must travel in your cars, please be extra safe and vigilant on this scary night.
As always, thanks for caring, thanks for all you do, and thanks for being good neighbors. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure that we remain the best place to not only grow up, but the best place to grow old.
