South Ogden City Adopts FY 2008-2009 Budget

Last Tuesday the City Council adopted the Fiscal Year 2008/09 budget for South Ogden City. This is a process that takes us over 6 months to complete. To learn more about the budget process click on this link:

The new budget takes effect on July 1, 2008 and runs till June 30, 2009. While we are implementing our new budget we are also in the process of closing out our old budget. Budgeting is a year-round process.

Budget Numbers

South Ogden General Fund: $8,735,445

Total Funds (includes water, sewer, garbage, etc.): $15,737,000

Capital Projects

These projects are expected to be completed this fiscal year:

Nature Park Phase II
Yearly Road/Sidewalk Project
New Animal Control Shelter
Traffic Signal Emitters for the Fire Department
40th and Adams Traffic Signal Upgrade
Increase Capacity of 5600 S. Waterline for new South Jr. High School
Burch Creek PRV
Reline 40th Street Sewer Line
Install Sewer Line Maintenance Program
Replace Grate for Storm Sewer

The city was able to realize some budget savings this year on its health insurance and by combining our Public Works and Parks Department department head.

There were also a handful of items that city council has not funded due to lack of funds. This included additional personnel and fleet purchases.
