St. John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe says while city council is footing the bill for school crossing guards for the coming school year, a change is still necessary. “It mystifies me how the school board can take a position that they do not want to be involved in or partner with the city in a program that will safeguard their pupils who are their responsibility,” O’Keefe said. The program costs $145,000 annually.
