Beaver County commissioners on Friday filed an emergency motion to stop Beaver County Sheriff George David from resuming hiring out uniformed deputies to work private security details.
On Feb. 7, Erie County Senior Judge John A. Bozza approved a preliminary injunction requested by county commissioners to stop the practice. Commissioners said the county code gives only commissioners the power to enter into contracts on behalf of the county.
David appealed the preliminary injunction on Wednesday and said that allows him to immediately resume the security details until the matter is settled.
An appeal by Beaver County Solicitor Joseph Askar said David's appeal amounted to an automatic stay of the preliminary injunction, and he's asking Bozza to vacate any stay. There was no ruling on Askar's motion as of Friday evening.
