ORANGEVILLE COUNCIL EXPECTED TO VOTE ON POLICING MATTER IN JUNE 5/16/2017 9:02:55 AM
Council has set a June 12th date to vote on the future of Orangeville's policing.
CAO Ed Brennan and town staff have been asked to bring a recommendation to the May 29th council meeting on which way Orangeville should go - either stay status quo with Orangeville Police Service or switch to OPP.
At a special meeting Monday (May 15), OPP clarified its new municipal billing model, which would kick-in starting in year four after the three-year transitional contract.
It also provided a tool for the town to plug in its own policing data to see what the costs could be, and they are pretty close to the numbers the treasurer presented in early April.
Using the OPP tool, Treasurer Marc Villeneuve says Orangeville could see savings of about $4.3-million in year four, however it isn't supported by OPP.
Mayor Jeremy Williams still isn't convinced.
Councillor Sylvia Bradley says everyone needs to understand there is no guarantee in any numbers the town receives.
When asked if he was confident he could make a decision in four weeks, Councillor Don Kidd says?
