North Ogden Proposition 1
North Ogden residents overwhelmingly defeated Proposition 1, voting down the resolution the council passed last summer to spend up to $7 million in revenue bonds for a public works complex.
Seventy-six percent of voters voted no on the proposition, despite the fact that city leaders said it would cost around $4.5 million to build.
Now the council will go back to the drawing board. Councilman Justin Fawson said the council has already started putting names together for a new public works facility committee and that it would start exploring all options quickly. He still thinks the city will have to bond for the site, but doesn't anticipate having to spend as much money.
Councilman Wade Bigler wants to build a facility similar to Pleasant View's.
Mayor Richard Harris has concerns over starting over because research and money have already been spent on the current proposed project, but all council members and the mayor are in agreement that a new site is imperative.
The current council will not make the decision as to what the future holds for the site.
The council doesn't plan to use a general obligation bond to pay for the complex, but will most likely stick with the revenue bond option.
