Province looks at cost for police

L’ORIGNAL | The counties council has an answer at last to the question posed to the provincial government about policing costs. The government has a committee looking into the matter. In January this year the United Counties of Prescott-Russell council (UCPR) voted to support a resolution from the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley demanding the prov- ince review the costs for OPP policing ser- vice contracts with municipalities and also that the provincial government consider covering a portion of those contracts itself. Ontario Transportation is looking at three possible infrastructure projects for the Prescott-Russell region. The United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) received notice from the ministry that Dillon Consulting Ltd. is contracted to finish the design and environmental assess- ments on three infrastructure projects. The three are among two dozen such

The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services sent back a letter ex- plaining that it has received complaints from many municipalities about the cost of police services, both those that contract with the OPP and those who deal with oth- er police agencies. The ministry has since created a consult- ing committee on the future of police ser- vices. The committee has representatives from the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, provincial police groups, and oth- ers. projects that the ministry is looking into for Eastern Ontario. The Limoges Road underpass located as part of Highway 417 between Russell Town- ship and The Nation municipality is one project. Another is the St-Eugène Road un- derpass, also part of the 417 system, locat- ed near East Hawkesbury. The third project is the Highway 34 culvert near Hawkesbury.
