OGDEN — Weber County Commissioner Kerry Gibson is the target of an Ogden Police Department investigation of some sort.
Public information is hard to come by, but it’s been a surprise, the fact of an elected leader here, seemingly out of the blue, falling onto the radar screen of law enforcement. Gibson has rebuffed any notion of wrongdoing and any hint of what may be behind this has actually come from him and his supporters. They suspect a multi-million dollar flood-prevention project in western Weber County may be at the root of things, but they say nothing untoward happened as the project, overseen by the county and completed in 2015, unfolded.
The apparent sticking point is that Gibson, through his family dairy operation, owns land in the area where the project occurred, abutting the Weber River, in fact.
Here are a few of the stories I’ve done thus far:
- Gibson backers, officials say river project handled properly as probe continues, Feb. 21, 2018
- As Gibson police probe continues, Utah DNR head remains supportive, Jan. 23, 2018
- Weber County Commissioner Gibson denies wrongdoing, says he’ll stay in post, Dec. 15, 2017
- Weber County Commissioner Kerry Gibson facing Ogden police investigation, Dec. 13, 2017
Most of anything that’s come out has been sided in favor of Gibson. Police are saying little as things proceed.
