A proposal which would have seen Muskoka’s urban municipalities pay more for the costly OPP billing model has been shot down by a District committee.

Bracebridge Mayor Graydon Smith tells the Moose that the corporate and emergency services committee has rejected the motion, but that this won’t be the end of the discussion…

The proposal would have seen places like Bracebridge and Huntsville pay more of the $15.8 million bill for police services over the next few years while townships like Muskoka Lakes and Lake of Bays would have paid less. The proposal was based on info provided by the OPP regarding their local service call volumes.
