regarding police coverage:
We regret to
announce that we will serve notice on the Borough of Pennsburg that we have voted to terminate the agreement that establishes
the Upper Perk Police Department effective at 12:01 a.m. on March 6, 2017. Unfortunately, our partnership has deteriorated
to the extent that it is irretrievably broken. Over the last few months, the Borough of East Greenville has not been
treated as an equal partner. We reached out to the Borough of Pennsburg in May, but to no avail. Instead, our
relationship has continued to deteriorate. The Police Commission cannot continue to operate in this manner. Therefore
we believe it is in the best interest of both municipalities to terminate the agreement.
East Greenville Borough Residents:
The council has decided to terminate and dissolve the agreement that established the Upper Perk
Police District, but our residents will not be left without police coverage.
We are working with the Pennsylvania State Police for coverage and will be rolling out our plans
for a small local police department to serve East Greenville Borough. We will present those plans at our October 25,
The East Greenville Borough Council appreciates
our residents' concerns and is preparing a response. We will provide a detailed explanation of the decision to terminate
and dissolve the agreement that established the Upper Perk Police District at our next Borough Council Meeting on Tuesday,
September 27, 2016. We will release our plans for police coverage at our October 25, 2016, Borough Council Meeting.
