Mechanical Brushing Program

The Township of Scugog will be re-initiating our mechanical brushing program along the Township's road allowances. Mechanical brushing provides improved:

  • Site lines by removing vegetation, trees and brush for the driving public at intersections, curves, hills and other danger areas;
  • Clearances for larger vehicles that may cause damage to school buses, farm equipment and commercial vehicles;
  • Snow storage area adjacent to the road and reduces drifting
  • Winter driving surfaces by opening up the overhead tree canopy and roadside accesses for sunlight to reach the road surface to promote melting of snow/ice pack conditions;
  • Public Safety.

The mechanical brushing will start in the southwest quadrant of the Township and continue throughout the Township.  If you have any questions, please contact works@scugog.ca

Durham Workforce Authority – Employer Survey

The Durham Workforce Authority (DWA) has partnered with the Region of Durham, Economic Development and Durham College to conduct an Employer Survey in North Durham.

This Employer Survey will be used to measure the demand for workers, as well as understanding what education, training, and skills are needed.

Employers are asked questions relating to the size of their workforce; future plans to expand or downsize, the challenges employers face when recruiting new employees; the availability of skilled workers in their area and the type of skills that they think are needed in their workforce.

The Employer Survey is available online at:
http://fluidsurveys.com/s/northdurhamemployers/

Please take a moment to complete this important survey. We need to compile data in order to assist with our skills shortages in North Durham.  You may also have a representative from the Durham Workforce Authority visit your place of business in the coming weeks as well!
