Despite a plea from councillor Cindy Scholten, Sarnia Council has approved a new Procurement of Goods and Services Policy for the city.

Scholten had asked that council table its decision until amendments were made to the policy.

Scholten says one of her big concerns in the policy was that city management is not required to issue a request for proposals for anything from $5,000 to $25,000.
