Police association sues Macungie borough

Macungie Police sue the borough

MACUNGIE, Pa. - The borough of Macungie has been slapped with a lawsuit filed by the local Police Officers Association.

Macungie Mayor Rick Hoffman says the police officers are upset because he's cutting hours for some of them.

He recently gave an order that would only allow one officer be scheduled per shift except on Friday and Saturday nights when there would be two.

Mayor Hoffman says more officers aren't necessary and the move will save money.

Police declined to comment on the lawsuit.
