Pennsburg Officials Approve Interim Agreement for Police Services
Written by Larry Roeder, Editor

But East Greenville tables decision for three months


            Pennsburg officials took a major step towards reconciliation with their East Greenville neighbors by unanimously approving a resolution authorizing an interim police agreement between the two boroughs for police services.

            The approval was made with several of the newly elected East Greenville borough officials in the audience.  Prior to the vote, East Greenville council-member elect Angie Fegely told the board that she was "excited to work with all of the officials." 

            The agreement was for the Upper Perk Police Department/Pennsburg Division, to provide police services to East Greenville borough, beginning on January 4, 2018.  The agreement was for a three-month period at a cost of $42,500 per month.

            The agreement was for police services only and police command and authority would remain with Pennsburg officials.

            The agreement was contingent upon approval by East Greenville officials at their meeting, scheduled for later Tuesday evening.  At that meeting, East Greenville officials voted to table the agreement for three months.

            In reorganizational business, Council President Kris Kirkwood was re-elected to the position for 2018.  Fred Schutte, Jr. was elected as Council Vice-President and Bruce Lord, who previously served as vice-president, was elected President Pro Tem.

            Some of the other appointments included Lisa Hiltz – Secretary/Treasurer; Wolf, Baldwin and Associates – Legal Counsel; Gilmore and Associates – Engineer and Code Enforcement Officers; and Styer and Associates – Auditing Firm.

            Police incidents for December, as reported by Upper Perk Police Sergeant Joe Adams, included 11 incidents: 2 thefts, 1 forgery/fraud/identity theft; 4 assault/harassment/stalking; 1 public drunkenness/disorderly conduct; and 3 borough ordinance/other offenses.

            Sergeant Adams also reported that 2 assault/harassment/stalking, 1 burglary/attempted burglary; and 1 driving under the influence case were cleared by arrests during the month. 

            Also, there was a total of 333 incidents and services rendered for December along with 6 parking tickets issued and 43 vehicle investigations conducted.
