BROCKTON – Mayor Chris Peabody commented on this week’s council agenda, saying there are a number of matters that are of community interest.
The first is the new five-municipality police services board. Brockton’s preference would be for a stand-alone board, said the mayor. Barring that, he’d prefer to see a board with one vote per municipality, although the situation is up for debate.
The new board is based on the South Bruce OPP detachment area that includes Brockton, Kincardine, Huron-Kinloss, Arran-Elderslie and South Bruce.
Also on the agenda are health and safety requirements for municipal contractors. Peabody said he’d prefer to follow Bruce County’s rules – they have more experience with contractors, he said.

Peabody commented on Tuesday’s Golf Fore Hospice event.
“It’s a great community event,” he said.
And the pool opens June 26.
