Beaver County Sheriff George David said Thursday he'll resume hiring out uniformed deputies to work private security details while he appeals a preliminary injunction stopping the work.
David filed an appeal with Commonwealth Court on Wednesday seeking to overturn Erie Senior Judge John A. Bozza's Feb. 11 order granting a preliminary injunction.
The commissioners sought the injunction, arguing that the county code only gave commissioners the power to enter into contracts on behalf of the county.
Beaver County Solicitor Joseph Askar said his office is preparing an emergency motion to enforce the preliminary injunction during the appeal.
Bozza must determine whether the injunction will be made permanent. No hearing has been scheduled.
