A delay from the Ontario Provincial Police in pricing a new five-year contract for the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry (SDG) has resulted in a one year extension of the existing contract.
“We didn’t get notice from the OPP until quite recently and obviously we’re in a lame duck position so we can’t follow the normal [renewal] process,” said SDG’s chief administrative officer Tim Simpson at a Tuesday council meeting. “What we’re recommending is a one year extension of the existing contract with all terms and conditions of the existing contract remaining the same.”
Simpson said that with a new council coming in, and a new CAO to be hired by the beginning of 2023, there will be time next year to look at service levels and other matters that are discussed in policing contract renewals.
Council voted in favour of the one year extension.
