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.
