Plaque on bridge will honour former Golden mayor

A new plaque will be placed on the Pedestrian Bride in honour of Walter "Red" Scott.

Red Scott Plaque

One of the people who brought the iconic Pedestrian Bridge to Golden will soon be memorialized on it.

Walter “Red” Scott, who passed away in late 2013, was Mayor of Golden when the bridge was constructed. Coun. Keith Hern proposed that council put a plaque on the bridge for Scott after he said he has heard several members of the express their support for the idea.

“Red was a very well-respected mayor… I think it would be good to recognize his contribution, and this would be the perfect place for it,” said Hern.

Council unanimously agreed that a plaque in Scott’s honour would be a great addition to the bridge.

Financial Plan

The Town of Golden’s 2014-2018 Five-Year Financial Plan Bylaw was officially adopted by council on March 4.

The budget contains a few changes from previous five-year financial plans, including a two per cent increase which will be allocated to asset renewal.

There is also a new reserve targeted specifically for dyke improvements, with $25,000 going into it annually. The budget passed without the future $1.2 million dyke improvement project, which was removed after the Finance Committee made the recommendation.
