The Region of Waterloo has scheduled a meeting for the public to talk specifically about the 2021 Waterloo Regional Police Service budget.
The announcement was made Saturday around noon on Twitter.
An additional public meeting on the 2021 plan and budget - specific to the Police budget - is being scheduled for Thursday January 14, from 7 – 9 p.m. subject to Regional Council approval on Tuesday January 12. More details will follow the meeting on January 12.— Region of Waterloo (@RegionWaterloo) January 9, 2021
The meeting has been scheduled for this upcoming Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., but still needs to be approved by regional council on Tuesday.
More details about the public meeting will be available once it is approved on Tuesday, according to the tweet.
The separate meeting scheduling comes after Waterloo Region residents pointed out there was only one public input session set for the 2021 budget, when usually there is two.

Hey @Redman4Region, why aren't residents of Waterloo Region being given a chance to provide feedback on the police budget between it being presented on Jan. 12th and the vote on Jan. 20th?
If I'm not mistaken, this is the first. Seems like a bad time to block feedback on that.
