A provincial review of government spending could have a big impact on the City Police budget.
Acting Police Chief Sylvie Hauth tells us $3 million of their budget is made up of provincial grants, and if they aren’t renewed, she’ll have to have some tough decisions to make.
The Acting Police Chief has yet to hear from the province when their review will be complete and the funding will be allocated.
Meanwhile, 2018 is proving to be an atypical year for the Police Services Board. Officials say their annual budget of $24,500 is over budget.
The Police Board budget is in the red due to legal costs, and fees related to the search for the new Police Chief.
