Department Reports were presented. Dan and Chad are almost done painting streets. The office will be closed Sept. 14th due to IPERS training. Mick has some issues with people mowing.

During public comment City Administrator Clausen updated the council on a few items. Jessica Christensen now has her office set up at the Leonard Good Community Center for the Rec Coordinator position.

Chad Thede gave kudos to the Ogden PD and Sheriff’s Department for their quick response. He is happy with the sheriff’s agreement.

The grant is scheduled to close-out March 31, 2020.  To date, $133,743 in CDBG funds have been requested and $1,169,947 in matching funds have been expended.
