As more Ontario municipalities are rejecting the results of OPP costings to take over their police forces, here at home town council continues to dither on a clear cut issue. There will be NO SAVINGS if Midland police service is taken over by the OPP. Period!
It would appear town fathers are waiting for some kind of Hail Mary to convince council to go OPP even though a ton of tax dollars has already gone into studying this issue to death. No savings means, no savings.
Trying to make a purse out of a sow’s ear doesn’t/won’t hack it. This council notorious for its in-camera meetings, turmoil at town hall and the selling of a parking lot without calling tender and the Midland Bay Landing fiasco has not bode well for town hall or the corporation.
So as council dithers over the OPP costing saga and unrest rears its ugly head at town hall….Midlanders continue to be amazed at how some folks can waste other people’s money.
