Many people in our community are not aware of a “ward boundary review” taking place in Scugog Council. The consultant's submission indicates four possible alternations to our present boundaries. Three of these indicate dividing Cartwright/Ward Four (with west Quarter Line as the diving line) becoming part of Scugog Island. This obviously is serious and the decision may impact you, so have your say, a feedback form is available at the Clerk's office in Port Perry. Please take action. May 31st is the deadline for submissions.
