South Glen­garry is say­ing “no dice” to the Corn­wall Com­mu­nity Po­lice Ser­vice Board’s re­quest for ad­di­tional fund­ing for fire dis­patch ser­vices.

At its June 27 meet­ing, coun­cil agreed to ac­cept a five-year term with the city of Corn­wall for a cost of $218,820. Shortly af­ter that, the ser­vice board said it wanted to add a two per cent per an­num in­crease and an ad­di­tional $10,000 im­ple­men­ta­tion fee for start-up costs.

July 12, act­ing fire chief Dave Robert­son sent a let­ter stat­ing his dis­plea­sure to both Corn­wall’s fire chief and deputy-chief. Coun­cil sup­ports Mr. Robert­son.

“I agree one hun­dred per cent,” said Coun­cil­lor Trevor Bougie. “We were quoted a price. I’m on board with what he has done.” Mayor Ian McLeod agreed, say­ing that it was too late to change be­cause an of­fer was made and ac­cepted.
