Please read and pass on to all:  Attachments below
The East Cocalico Twp. supervisors have sent the WCT supervisors a new five year proposal that is less expensive than the Ephrata Boro police proposal. Plus WCT is planning to spend an estimated $100K plus to renovate the northwest corner of the township building to provide a police sub-station that the Ephrata police don’t want or intend to use. They also authorized a ”special counsel” to negotiate the police contract with Ephrata at a yet unknown price but expected with legal advertising could be another $20K. After months of saying they are happy with the ECT police service but can not afford it, the West supervisors now have a price from ECT that matches the Ephrata price, plus the Ephrata price has start up costs of an extra $47K. With start up plus legal costs, plus estimated construction and design costs, using the Ephrata police would/could cost at least $150K more than East Cocalico police. Now more than ever the WCT citizens need to put a stop to this foolishness.

Please have every WCT citizen that has an desire to keep our current police send this letter to the supervisors immediately.

Thanks, Steve. 336-4775
