The cost of policing in Meaford is going up for some, and down for others.

Residents of the former Sydenham Township will pay $90 more per year; and those in the former St. Vincent Township will pay $125 more per year for policing.

But former Town of Meaford residents will $220 per year less because council voted to eliminate area rating for policing costs.

Under the area rating system, residents of the former town of Meaford were paying 60 per cent of the cost of policing services.
