Dear Ogden City Residents,
We, the City Council, have spent countless hours over the last few days working in your behalf to determine how approval of the military exercise came about. As we stated before, the Council had no prior notice of the incident and felt it important to learn everything we could regarding decisions made leading up to the event. The Mayor and his staff have been cooperative in providing answers to the dozens of questions we submitted to them.
We know that many of you are very frustrated with the lack of information and outreach from the Administration. At our insistence, the Mayor has assured us that he and his staff will be working hard in the coming days and weeks to provide you with the information you deserve. We are pleased with the honesty and accountability we have heard from the administration. We expect the same for you. If at any time we feel that their responses or efforts are unsatisfactory, we will not hesitate to use our investigative powers to shine a light on the issues.
Thank you all for caring enough about Ogden to voice your concerns. We have heard you loud and clear. Serving this community is a great honor for each of us. The greatest people in the world live in Ogden, Utah!
The Ogden City Council
Rich Hyer, Chair
Ben Nadolski, Vice Chair
