OGDEN -- The city has a packed wish list of improvement projects it would like to see funded with RAMP taxes in 2013.
Last week, the city council passed a resolution approving nine projects in Ogden that will be submitted to the Weber County RAMP Tax Recreation and Parks Committee for consideration for next year's round of funding.
The list totals $779,351. The two most expensive projects on the list are $260,000 for a restoration of the Weber River and $107,251 for the second phase of a high-adventure park near 18th Street and the Ogden River.
The city also wants $73,000 for a new dirt trail that would tie into the Ogden River Parkway. Built along Madison Boulevard, the trail will be made for mountain bikers and trail runners.
The list also includes upgrades to Lorin Farr Park.
The city wants nearly $100,000 to repair the park's pavilion, for an ultraviolet-light disinfection system, and for pool covers for the park's pools.
The city also wants to renovate the lights at the 4th Street Ballpark, install new signs along the trail system and purchase new equipment to maintain sports fields.
The RAMP fund comes from a tax established by Weber County voters in 2004 that allows the county to impose a local sales tax of one-tenth of 1 percent, which is 1 cent on a $10 sale, to improve recreation, arts, museums and parks.
The RAMP Tax Advisory Board will meet in February to review applications and determine recommendations.
On March 1, the advisory board will presents its recommendations to the Weber Area Council of Governments.
A final determination on funding will be made by the Weber County Commission, and contracts will be awarded for projects on April 1.
