Wawa Council Approves Change to Police Services Board Member Compensation

The compensation for members of Wawa's Police Services Board is changing - to fit a change in meeting schedule.

While the “honorarium” was previously set at $100 a month for the provincial appointee and community representative on the board, Wawa Municipal Council has approved a slight change, making it $100 per meeting, though that would be increased to $150 per meeting if they serve as chair of the board.

The municipal representative and any municipal staff serving on the board are excluded from receiving an honorarium.

Though the board used to meet every month, it now meets a minimum of just four times a year.

Provincial law sets a minimum honorarium of $100 a year.
