– Heritage Committee in the works
A group of about fifteen Ogden residents, who have done an inventory of historically relevant sites and buildings, would like the municipality to recognize some of that group as an official heritage committee. “We said yes but with one proviso: that they make themselves known to all Ogden residents so they can present themselves also to be on the committee,” said Ogden mayor Michael Sudlow. Some of the interesting sites include a church and an old Customs House for boats on the lake.
It looks as if the municipality will have to go to court to get compensation from a developer and the tree cutter that the landowner hired for cutting down too many mature trees. They had been given a permit to cut trees for a road and under hydrolines, but they cut many more than they were supposed to. “We tried to fine the people involved but they refused to pay,” said Mr. Sudlow.
