Clearfield Borough approves police, road crew contracts
Saturday, October 18, 2014
By Jeff Corcino Staff Writer
The Clearfield Borough Coun-cil approved the new collective bargaining agreements with the police department and the road crew at its meeting Thursday night. The new police contract is for three years and it calls for a 3 percent increase in pay in the first year, 2.75 percent in the second year and 2.5 percent in the third year. The new contract also removes residency requirements for police officers.
In the former contract, police officers were required to live within 12 miles of the police station; however, recent court cases have overturned similar requirements in other municipalities, so the borough had its residency requirement removed in this latest contract, borough operations manager Leslie Stott said.
The police department has seven full-time officers and five part-time officers plus one open part-time position. more...

WINGATE - The Clearfield passing game has been relatively quiet in recent weeks, failing to break the 100-yard mark in three of the past four games and netting just 34 combined yards the last two.
But the Bison aerial attack looked just fine Friday night at Alumni Stadium as quarterback Cody Spaid tossed three first-half touchdown passes to lead Clearfield to a 49-14 rout of host Bald Eagle.

"We were on fire in the second half," said Mo Valley head coach Michael Keith. "We were a little flat in the first half, and we just came out and were ready to play in the second half. It showed." more...
