OGDENSBURG — City Manager Stephen P. Jellie remains hopeful that the city beach will be able to open next summer despite several failed attempts.

The city leased the beach from the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority in 2021, paying $3,000 to lease the property. According to a report Mr. Jellie gave in September 2021, the city spent a total of $18,000 to clean it up, prepare it and open it in 2020, but the opening never happened due to high readings for E. coli.
