School crossing guards play an important role in the lives of children who walk or bicycle to school by helping them safely cross the street at key locations. They remind drivers of the presence of pedestrians and can lead to more parents feeling comfortable about their children walking or bicycling to school. Crossing guards also are role models helping children develop the necessary skills to cross streets safely at all times.
The Mayor and Council will recognize the dedicated service of the Township of Scugog's nine regular crossing guards at the Council meeting of March 30, 2015.
Please use caution when approaching a school crossing to ensure the safety of Scugog's students.

The Township of Scugog is undertaking two Municipal Class Environmental Assessments. They include:
The Seagrave Bridge (Bridge 6) over the Nonquon River, on River Street in the Village of Seagrave, 0.95 km north of Regional Road 2. The existing bridge was constructed in 1920 and is a single span structural steel pony truss with a laminated timber deck and an asphalt wearing surface. The bridge is in poor condition and is currently posted with a load limit. The bridge was closed recently due to the bearing seat deterioration and which was temporarily repaired allowing the bridge to reopen. Also the handrail does not meet current bridge code requirements;
Bridge 9 over the Nonquon River, on Scugog Line 8, 1.7 km east of Highway 7/12. The existing bridge was constructed in 1940 and is a three span (3.7 m+\-; 3.7 m+\-; 3.1 m+\-) structural steel girder bridge with a timber deck and asphalt wearing surface. The bridge is in poor condition and is currently closed to traffic. Also the handrail does not meet current bridge code requirements.
These projects are being initiated in accordance with the latest edition of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Manual. The Municipal Class EA applies to municipal infrastructure projects including roads, bridges, water and wastewater projects. The Project is designated as a Schedule 'B' undertaking under the Environmental Assessment Act. The scope of the study will assess options for the removal, rehabilitation, replacement or reconstruction to current standards of the bridge and recommend a preferred option.
Public and agency consultation is an important component of the Environmental Assessment process. Public and agency input are invited for incorporation into the planning and design of the project.
