The Mid-North Monitor - - News - CAMILLA WHITE-KIRK­PATRICK

Es­panola coun­cil has re­quested a two-month ex­ten­sion to re­spond to the OPP cost­ing pro­posal.

The OPP cost­ing pro­posal was pre­sented to coun­cil last fall on Sept. 20 with a six­month win­dow to re­spond. At the time, coun­cil was told there would be ren­o­va­tion costs to the OPP fa­cil­ity on High­way 17, as well as to the Es­panola Po­lice Sta­tion on High­way 6.

Coun­cil was not pro­vided with the ren­o­va­tion costs un­til early Jan­uary. The cost to ren­o­vate the OPP sta­tion is es­ti­mated to be $421,500.

At the Jan. 30 spe­cial meet­ing, coun­cil passed a res­o­lu­tion re­quest­ing a two-month ex­ten­sion to the re­sponse time of March 20 to the OPP pro­posal.

Coun­cil­lor Bill Fos­ter said there are two rea­sons as to why coun­cil needs an ex­ten­sion.
