Such was the case on Friday when I called Laureldale Mayor Fred Feltenberger to ask if it was true that he had instructed borough cops to stop writing traffic and parking citations.
It was true, he said, and it was being done to punish the officers for not filling out contact cards, which are index cards on which officers write names, addresses and other identifying information about people they encounter on patrol.
The officers weren't doing that part of their job, so the mayor decided he'd take away what he perceived to be the most rewarding part of their jobs, writing speeding and parking tickets.
When I spoke to Councilman Jason Glessner, he didn't understand why writing tickets, which essentially is boring paperwork, was somehow a reward.
The good news is that it's only for the month of September, Feltenberger said.

"We thought we didn't need one," Laureldale Mayor Fred Feltenberger said.

Before the signs came down, police issued about 40 tickets, Feltenberger said. Most people just paid $109.50 for the fine and fees he said, but a handful of recipients challenged the tickets in District Judge Dean R. Patton's court.
...
Feltenberger said he was not sure if there is any recourse for people who paid the tickets but imagined it would take some sort of legal action to challenge them.
This is not the first time the borough has had to backtrack to enforce traffic citations. In 2001, tickets the borough issued to truck drivers for disregarding weight limits on Bellevue Avenue were thrown out because the ordinance was not backed up by a traffic study.
If the ordinance authorizing the no-left-turn signs is passed Monday, the signs can go back up by early December, Feltenberger said.

"It hasn't happened yet, but there's always that slim chance that one of the kids could get hurt or there's an accident," Feltenberger said.

Laureldale Mayor Fred Feltenberger said he's angry that borough police officers are ignoring his order to collect more information from people they encounter on patrol.
As punishment, Feltenberger said, he ordered police to stop issuing parking or traffic citations during September.
"If they don't do the work, they don't get the reward," Feltenberger said of the four full-time and four part-time officers.
That work, Feltenberger explained, was his order to stop people on the street, ask their identity and what they are doing in the borough, then fill out contact cards on the people they question.
It was unclear why Feltenberger considers issuing parking and traffic citations a reward.
...
Feltenberger said a school crossing guard and a few residents got wind of the prohibition on parking and traffic citations and complained.
"I did tell them no citations," Feltenberger said.
However, he said he never told police not to the enforce speed limits and other laws in school zones.
"God bless the guy who speeds in a school zone," Feltenberger said. "We'll hammer the heck out of him."
Feltenberger, who in February praised the work being done by police officers, complained that the officers have refused to embrace his order to collect more information on people they encounter. He also complained that some patrolmen are lazy.
"They sit in the 3000 block of Montrose (Avenue) texting," Feltenberger said. "One guy had $300 in text messages."
At a February council meeting, Feltenberger said a stepped-up presence and enforcement had caused drivers to slow down, particularly near school zones. He said the force handed out 206 citations in January for speeding and other violations.
Feltenberger also stressed that council had nothing to do with his order.
"This was totally at my discretion," he said.

Some municipal officials, such as Laureldale Mayor Fred Feltenberger, say residents would lose out on the service they receive from police if they moved from a local to a regional department. He said residents can expect higher service standards from their police officers because borough officials are closely involved in the department's operations.
Laureldale has discussed regionalizing police in the past, but the proposal wasn't popular with council members or the public, he said.
"Whoever brings it up, they all jump on top of them," he said.
