Recently the city of Timmins has come under scrutiny from Cochrane Mayor Peter Politis for their handling of the DSSAB social service costs.

Politis says the formula for deciding social service costs must change.

He says the City of Timmins proposal was unfair to the surrounding communities, considering their aim is to find adjustments on the backs of their regional partners.

The next meeting to discuss the issues with the DSSAB will take place on Thursday, March 16th.
