Big Run residents: We want police speed patrols

August 21, 2011

BIG RUN — Last Monday, Big Run Borough Council members said residents are again wanting them to hire a part-time police officer to patrol borough streets.

Council president Nick Lantz said one of the reasons residents have approached him is the constant speeding along Route 119 and on borough streets.

Mayor Joe Buterbaugh said there has been discussion with municipalities such as Falls Creek and Sykesville about sharing a part-time officer with Big Run.
