No wonder the Municipality of Meaford council is in a dilemma over the choice of policing for this municipality. The whole process was flawed from the beginning and remains so.
What is required is a response to a Request For a Proposal on policing, ie. an RFP.
By writing their own requirements in an RFP the Meaford Council controls the agenda and puts the respondents on a level playing field.
The Owen Sound policing proposal came ‘out of the blue’, unbidden and not formally asked for. A Request For Proposal would outline what is required by the municipality as client. As it is now the parties have to work with surmise, uncertainty, speculation and pseudo comparisons.
