Five permits were presented to the Council for review. Walnut Street Wellness for a fence at 125 W. Walnut, Lucky Pig for a privacy fence at 113 W. Walnut, Lyndsey Grinstead a privacy fence at 525 S. 1st Street, Randy Russell for a chain link fence at 537 SW 5th Street and Cody Johnson for a privacy fence at 243 S. 1st Street.

 

Department Reports were presented. It was noted that the city audit will be done the week of July 22nd.

 

Public Comment. Robin Good asked when a drain was going to be put in on S 1st and SE 2nd. Chad Thede said it is scheduled to be done next summer. Dave Ohlson discussed parking on 3rd and Mulberry as it is hard to see the stop sign heading south on Third St. due to vehicles parked all the way to the corner. Dan Buzzell will look into this. Dave Huntley questioned the fireworks ordinance. Mick Bailey stated the county was on duty and they did speak to several individuals. For future reference we need to run a reminder in the newspaper regarding our ordinance. Jeff Crouse asked questions regarding flooding issues on SW 5th St. Chad Thede again said there are pre-engineered plans in the works when the funding is available. However, our system can only handle an inch an hour. Our new $5 million Wastewater Treatment Plant is designed for wastewater it has nothing to do with runoff and surface water from these heavy rainfalls. We are continuing to look at ongoing projects to help with these issues as well. Gerald Duff asked if we had an ordinance in place regarding individuals cleaning up after their dogs. You can be fined for littering for not cleaning up after your pets. Robin Good was asked to sit on the Boone County Housing Trust Committee.

 

Building Permit Request: Gerald Duff is in the process of selling some property to Shaun and Nina Rohmiller. The Rohmillers intend to build a 42×88 morton building with living quarters and then will build a new home at a later date. The Rohmillers have received a copy of the building permit and city ordinance and plan to submit them when the builder is ready to begin the project, which may not be until November. After much discussion on our codes and permit, the council made the decision to require the Rohmiller’s get a variance. Council will hold a public hearing at the regular meeting in August 2019. Administrator provided the layout and list of surrounding property owners for the variance.

 

Legacy Request – Robin Good made a request for Tim Schlenker. He has purchased a lot north of Kallems and wants to build a home and 3 car garage. He is looking for any incentives, those being free street repairs, sewer and water hook-up fees waived. Council suggested Robin visit with Ogden Legacy for that request.

 

Clean up for Flood. Sean Thompson suggested we help with cleanup efforts due to the recent floods. The City of Ogden along with Tyler Wisecup will provide roll offs at different locations for those who need to dispose of items with the recent rains and flooding. Wednesday one will be a United Community Church, Thursday at Howe School. Next Monday at Wisecup’s property on E. Walnut and Tuesday at the city park. If one needs some help with heavy carpet, etc., city employees and volunteers will be around to help get items from the curb to the dumpsters. We will not be coming into any homes. Tyler Wisecup will be providing the use of the roll offs and the Administrator has requested free dumps at the landfill. Individuals should contact city hall if they need assistance moving items to the dumpsters.
