Beaver County appeal latest step in deputies' work dispute

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
