Wesleyville's mayor, E. Paul Johnson, appeared before the Lawrence Park commissioners this week to lobby for it.
"It's going to be a big savings for Lawrence Park and a little savings for Wesleyville," Johnson
said."I just don't want to see it come to a halt."
said Hooker's budget would mean a savings of $100,000 a year for Lawrence Park and a savings of between $20,000 and $30,000 a year for Wesleyville
and Lawrence Park have talked about merging their police departments for 11 years and have gone through two studies.
