Seven Springs Boro “Disbands” Police

The Somerset Daily American quotes Frank Kovak, Seven Springs Borough Manager saying that the “Council voted unanimously to disband the police department as of December 31, 2010.”  According to the article Seven Springs Resort notified the department that their contract would not be renewed. That will end 37 years of work protecting guests and home owners. Let that action sink in.

Yes, the resort has a security department but their actions are limited by law. Not only does the resort utilize the services provided by this department but all of the home owner associations have a line item expenditure for police protection in their budgets.  “Money” was cited as the deciding factor.

This means that if and when trouble occurs the “HELP” call will go to State Police.
