Mayor Ivan Court says all the fear mongers were wrong about how much the new police station at Peel Plaza will cost. The figures being bandied about ranged from 40 to 60 million dollars. The Mayor tells CHSJ News those were wildly off the mark and he's pleased with the lowest bid. Court goes on to say both the city ands the province explored the possibility of a public-private partnership and found it to be too expensive. Mayor Court predicts the majority of Common Council will be pleased although Deputy Mayor Stephen is expected to vote against at a special meeting of Common Council planned for Tuesday to vote on the project.
