Today’s the day county council will be meeting to discuss the status of the possible increase in OPP costs.

Haliburton County could see a drastic increase of over $5 million in OPP costs. This is part of the plan to implement the Auditor General’s recommendations.

Minden Hills Reeve Barb Reid says it is important for local MPP Laurie Scott to know about the issues and how unhappy people are about it. She suggests people write to her along with the Premier and the Minister of Community Safety of Correctional Services.

Reid says there are no signs the increase will be put on hold. The meeting will be held at 1:30.
