Orangeville | by Jill Young  

In the report by Pomax Consulting, the Town of Orangeville would pay 7.2 million dollars more for policing next year if they switched to OPP.

Orangeville Town Council heard the consultants report Monday night, on switching from Orangeville Police to OPP for service.

In the report by Pomax Consulting, the Town of Orangeville would pay 7.2 million dollars more for policing next year if they switched to OPP.

However, in 2021, the town would save $1.6 million dollars compared to the expected budget of the Orangeville Police Service.

It also says by 2024, the town would have recovered its transitional costs, and would see an overall savings of 1.7 million dollars.

The savings total is expected to be $61 million dollars - in 16 years.

In their conclusion the consultant says that compared to either the Orangeville Police Service's currently approved budget or a revised budget proposal, there will be a savings no matter what if they chose the OPP proposal.
