South Ogden City Council Meetings

South Ogden City Council meetings are held the first and third Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at South Ogden City Hall (3950 Adams Avenue). City Council meetings are the cities doing their business in the public arena. We publish an agenda in the newspaper and on our website before every meeting. This agenda gives the public a chance to see what issues we are discussing during that particular meeting.

City Council meetings usually have pretty sparse attendance. Usually people show up if they have an issue on the agenda or if the city has a "hot-button" issue that is pending. Outside of a handful of people and the Boy Scouts we don't normally see people coming to the meeting "just to watch".

As a city we would love for our citizens to come to more meetings. We understand that they aren't always the most exciting thing to attend, but this is the citizen's business that is being conducted. Each meeting has time set aside for the public to make comments. These are times when issues can be brought before the City Council that maybe they weren't aware of. Once we're aware of the issue then we can take the steps needed to get it taken care of.

If you're not interested in a City Council meeting you can always attend a Planning Commission meeting. They meet on the second Thursday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council chambers at City Hall.
