Norm presented additional crosswalk flags and containers to be located at four more crosswalks in recognition of the distinguished service of former Town Councillors Thom Barclay, Tyler Hayden and Peter Zwicker who tirelessly advocated for pedestrian safety. Commemorative plaques will be placed at these four crosswalks this month in appreciation of their community dedication.
