Notice to Town of Orangeville Taxpayers

The Orangeville Police Services Board confirms that both the Ferguson and Sprague matters were settled.  At the advice of our counsel, we were advised not to issue a press release on this matter and when we received a media inquiry, counsel indicated that we could confirm a settlement had been reached.  Typically settlements are confidential to protect those involved.

As all municipal councilors are aware, lawsuits are common to municipalities including the Town of Orangeville.  As is the Town of Orangeville’s practice, the Orangeville Police Services Board refers these matters to the insurer.  These settlements did not affect our budget and were not paid by the taxpayers.
