Cheswick Council has decided to consider three proposals to contract out police work in the borough.

The proposals come from the Harmar Township, Springdale Borough and Springdale Township police departments.

In the request for proposals, council specifically asked for a constant police presence in the borough.

The proposals were requested as a way of saving Cheswick money. The police budget is $391,000. Council did not release details on any of the proposals.

“As much as they (the proposals) are the same, there are things different,” said Councilman Sherman Kephart.

Council will meet on Jan. 29 after reviewing the proposals more closely to discuss the options.
