The town of Og­den has a new en­vi­ron­ment com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of four elected mem­bers from the com­mu­nity and two mem­bers of the town’s coun­cil. Seven res­i­dents showed in­ter­est in the com­mit­tee but the four who were elected were: Jean Beaudry, Lise Rousseau, Benoit Bis­sonette and Michel He­bert. Coun­cil mem­bers on the com­mit­tee are Sylvie Lefebvre and mayor Michael Sud­low. “It was nice to see so much in­ter­est from the cit­i­zens to be on the com­mit­tee. One rea­son the four were cho­sen is be­cause they come from all parts of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity,” said Mr. Sud­low. The com­mit­tee’s first meet­ing will be held on April 18th and will in­clude a pre­sen­ta­tion about the Mar­ling­ton Bog by Harry Is­brucker.

The town’s beau­ti­fi­ca­tion com­mit­tee will be plant­ing one hun­dred ap­ple trees around the mu­nic­i­pal­ity at about fif­teen dif­fer­ent sites on April 30th. The town’s road in­spec­tor, Vin­cent Lan­glois, has vol­un­teered to wa­ter all the trees af­ter the plant­ing us­ing a large tank. More vol­un­teers are needed to help with the ac­tual plant­ing of the young trees. Any­one in­ter­ested in help­ing should call the town hall for the de­tails.

The Mar­ling­ton Road is now open af­ter be­ing closed for about five days be­cause of the deep mud. The town dumped ¾ inch gravel in the prob­lem ar­eas.
