Alnwick-Haldimand Township council saved its taxpayers $150,000 in the first five minutes of this week’s council meeting with a favourable insurance quote.

Chief Administrative Officer Troy Gilmour noted that the $499,000 policy they had in 2022 was rising to $577,000 for 2023. They looked around for alternatives and got a quote that offered roughly $150,000 in savings from a company called Marsh.

It’s a huge savings for the township,” Gilmour said.

Council voted unanimously to proceed with the switch
