Sub for Santa - Angel Tree: South Ogden Police Department wishes to thank each of you who assisted in making Christmas dreams come true this season.  The Angel Tree was loaded down this year with the needs and wishes of the children in our community and, as always, the residents and businesses within South Ogden City made sure that each child was taken care of.  The families that were assisted each fell on hard times for different reasons.  Each family was truly grateful for your generosity and requested their gratitude be expressed.  Thank you very much! 

Winter Parking Ordinance: South Ogden City’s winter parking ordinance is now in effect. The ordinance runs each year between November 1 and April 1.  During these months, vehicles may not be parked on City streets between the hours of 1:00 am and 7:00 am, or during a snowstorm.  Please be mindful and observant of this ordinance.  It is very difficult for plows to effectively clear snow from roadways when vehicles are left parked on the street.   We appreciate your cooperation in helping us keep the roads clear and safe.

MLK Day of Service: Come celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by giving back to your community! South Ogden City will host the 3rd annual MLK-Day of service on Monday, January 18th. We will be meeting at South Ogden City Hall for check-in and breakfast from 9am-10am. From 10am-12noon we will be doing service projects around the community.
Survival Car Kit: So imagine this. It’s January and you are driving in the Virgin River Gorge between St. George and Mesquite.  The rain and snow turn to ice on the road.  Semi-trucks are jackknifed everywhere and all traffic is stopped. It’s dark and it’s cold and you only had enough fuel to get to Mesquite. No one’s going anywhere for at least 24 hrs. You’re hungry and thirsty and there is no cell service in the canyon.  The Donner Party flashes through your mind as you remember that your 72 hr. kit is in the garage back home.  Wouldn’t it be better to have the car survival kit in the car all of the time.  Not a bad idea.
