Weber Human Services hopes to sell Ogden office space

OGDEN -- A few years ago, Weber Human Services was bursting at the seams. At the time, Executive Director Kevin Eastman said the organization needed more room to accommodate all of the services it offered to the community.

"At the time, we didn't have offices for all of the programs," Eastman said.

To meet those needs, Weber Human Services purchased extra space across the parking lot from its offices at 237 26 St. in Ogden.

Now, however, because of budget cutbacks, the organization is looking to sell that extra office space.

During its board of directors meeting Friday, Weber Human Services received the go-ahead to approve a contract with Century 21 Gage Froerer and Associates to have the right to sell, lease or exchange the property. The contract will go into effect July 10.

"It may go on sooner," Eastman said. "I don't know."

Weber Human Services serves residents in Weber and Morgan counties, providing dozens of programs for at-risk youths, the elderly and children, as well as people who have mental illnesses and those recovering from addictions.
