BY JON CALL, CITY MANAGER/ATTORNEY
Resident’s Question: What’s New in North Ogden?
Answer. There’s a lot going on.
• The city council adopted the same property tax rate as last year .001108. Those whose home values have increased will see an increase in the amount of property taxes paid to the city. Typically, about 10% of your total property tax bill goes to the city.
• The city will be replacing some large water lines on Washington Blvd (1500 N. area) and Fruitland Drive (2100 N. area); there will be some road closures associated with the Fruitland Drive pipe work.
• The council has approved an across-the-board increase in police salaries to help retain and attract new police officers when vacancies occur. The police department is currently fully staffed, and we love our officers.
• The intersection at 2600 and Washington is complete, with a few cosmetic issues to still fix, and the widening of Washington Blvd. is well along its way to completion. The expected finish date is in mid-October.
• The playground at Mcgriff Park (2950 N. 900 E.) is getting an upgrade. There have been some parts on backorder, but we look forward to having this new area up and going for everybody to enjoy soon.
