Great Bend Township has received an invitation from Oakland Boro to discuss the possibility of the township contracting police services from the boro. Oakland Boro is currently contracting services to Oakland Township, and asked if Great Bend Township would be interested in discussing the particulars. The Great Bend Supervisors agreed that they should at least hear the details, so a meeting will be set up. Great Bend Township does have money in their budget for police services, in anticipation of state legislation that may be passed requiring all municipalities to provide police coverage. The township had participated in a survey through COG, but the resulting plan had the township partnered with Harford and Union Dale, neither of which are immediate neighbors, and had a price tag in excess of $100,000. The supervisors also participated in a group discussion with several other nearby municipalities to discuss the possibility of forming a regional department, but that group had dissolved.

Per Ordinance 411, Vannan is eligible to serve as treasurer because she is not a member of the borough council. It was noted that the treasurer does not have the authority to sign checks, which is solely the responsibility of the president and vice president.
