– Her­itage Com­mit­tee in the works

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

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.
