Almost half a million people visited the Ogden Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during its two-month open house, and 16,000 youth joined in a cultural celebration the day before its rededication.  Such a massive event takes many hands, and more than 50 Morgan adults rose to the occasion.
Porterville resident and former Morgan County Councilman Craig G. Fisher, named to the fifth quorum of the Seventy in 2010, oversaw the temple’s public open house and cultural celebration as chairman of the church’s rededication committee.  His wife, Julia, was at his side through much of his labors.
After being released as bishop of the Enterprise ward this spring, Brent Halls was called as Fisher’s executive secretary specifically for the Ogden Temple rededication events.  His responsibilities included coordinating communication and updates with 73 stake presidents and other assigned representatives.

The Utah Transit Authority board recommended not proceeding with placing a Morgan County annexation measure on the November ballot, saying an overwhelming majority of the feedback they received was in opposition.
“Public input weighed heavily on the decision,” said Ryan Taylor, UTA coordinated mobility manager.  “We weighed all factors including public support, the nature of the county and its rural setting, and the needs of the community at this time.”
UTA and Morgan County Councilman Logan Wilde agreed that this is just not the proper time for a “marriage of Morgan and UTA.”
The UTA board subcommittee met and made the recommendation Wednesday.  The Morgan County Council can still vote whether or not to keep the tax increase issue off the ballot.

Potholes, patchwork and standing water, oh my!!
The Morgan County Council unanimously approved up to $400,000 in road repairs Tuesday, getting a solid start on a much-needed road repair and maintenance program in the county.

Not every member of the Morgan County Council agrees with putting a transit tax on the ballot, or how the county should fund road repair and maintenance.
“I am not sure if I am in favor of a transit tax,” Morgan County Council Chairman Logan Wilde said.  
The county has been discussing raising sales tax to fund transit, perhaps through an agreement with the Utah Transit Authority (UTA).  That tax must be approved before an additional tax meant to provide funds to repair and maintain county roads could be added to the sales tax increase.
Wilde said he is concerned with the view that passing the transit tax is the only way that could lead to funding county roads.
When he reads the fine print about sales tax for funding roads, Wilde said there are too many stipulations.
