Lower Speed Limit on Glasmann Way

The speed limit on the southern part of Glasmann Way has been lowered for safety purposes. Initially this portion of the road had a 30 m.p.h. speed limit, but it has been changed to 25 m.p.h.

The portion of the road affected is Glasmann Way from the park to Highway 89.

Complete Count Committee- Census 2010

South Ogden City is gearing up for the 2010 Census. We have been approached by the organizers of the census to form a Complete Count Committee. The purpose of the committee is to ensure that all the residents of South Ogden are counted. The census data helps determine a portion of the sales tax revenue we receive. A complete count will help maximize that revenue.

The volunteers for this committee will NOT be going door-to-door. It will be more of a function of educating and informing citizens about the upcoming census. The City is looking for volunteers to be on this committee. If you are interested you can call Scott Darrington, City Manager at (801) 622-2702 or email him at
