The OPP costing process will still move ahead in Dryden. Ernie Remillard offers an update on behalf of the city.
"The committee's going to continue to meet," he emphasized. "So, nothing's halted or stopped."
The timeline for the process was changed last month. The costing committee found out the current Dryden Police Service building wouldn't be suitable, since it's too close to railway tracks.
Still, Remillard assured ratepayers work would continue on the review of policing costs and options. This includes a review of what kinds of buildings might be available in the city, if the OPP took over policing.
The chief administrative officer for the city also stressed alternative points of view were being sought out, such as opinions from community leaders, where the OPP offer had been rejected.
The costing process comes as city councillors look for ways to cut costs. Council has also been looking at its fire service.
