Bruce County has a new Warden for 2018.
Arran Elderslie Mayor Paul Eagleson has returned to the chair he held in 1995.
He says he's looking forward to the challenges ahead in 2018 saying "The county has definitely got a lot of good things on the go."
However Eagleson points out the good stewardship of outgoing Warden Mitch Twolan, Mayor of Huron-Kinloss, has put the county at the cutting edge of progress that is envied by other counties in the province.
Couple of things Eagleson wants to see move forward in 2018 is bringing natural gas service to southern Bruce County and to see ambulance services move into its own building.
EMS is currently leasing a facility in Saugeen Shores.
Eagleson says he's lucky the warden's position is not as time consuming as it was when he last served in that position.
He attributes that to restructuring of the governance model, along with a top-notch staff that that does most of the leg work for council.
Eagleson's nine year old grandchild, William Eagleson, son of Saugeen Shores Fire Chief Phil Eagleson was on hand for the ceremony and got a lesson in civics.
Young William tells Bayshore Broadcasting News, it was exciting to see his "Granpa" take the oath of office.
The elder Eagleson received a hug of approval from William following the ceremony.
Warden Eagleson is the 133rd person to hold the position of Warden for Bruce County since it’s beginnings in 1867.
