Town supports OPP billing model with AMO suggestions

The Town of Parry Sound is supporting the new OPP billing model and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario’s recommended measures.  AMO has tabled the blended household and weighted assessment option which captures all property types and is a measure of a community’s fiscal capacity as an option that has merit and has provided a report and recommendations on how to best implement the model between municipalities whose share of costs rises versus those whose share decreases, on January 1st next year.  Last night, Town council passed a resolution to request that the new Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Yasir Naqvi, reinforce the commitment made by previous Minister Madame Meilleur to implement the new OPP billing model on January 1, 2015.  Policing costs have risen extremely and are now one of the single largest municipal expenses consuming municipal tax dollars.
