Congratulations to 2017 Citizen of the Year, Liz Ogle.
On Tuesday, July 11, Mayor Leonard Jones and the Board of Aldermen recognized Ogle for being an active member of the community who uses the power of social media to engage fellow citizens and organize them into action.
When complaints about trash along I-49 piled up on a Facebook page, Ogle organized a Pop-up Clean-Up event this past spring. She and a group of volunteers picked up trash along the West Frontage Road and turned the bags into cash using the City’s Trashbusters program. Ogle then donated the money to the Grandview Assistance Program.
Liz also completed the 2017 Citizens Academy and serves on the Grandview Arts Council and is President of the Main Street group.
