The future of around-the-clock coverage by the Kane Borough Police Department may be in jeopardy.
For the past eight months, vocal â€śconcerned citizensâ€ť have called on the Kane Borough Council to tighten its belt and cut spending to reduce property taxes.
â€śOur main objection is to get the borough to save money,â€ť Mick Petruney of 321 Kearney St. has said. He is a leader of the informal group of â€śconcerned citizens.â€ť
When classes begin in Kane later this month, students will be able to bring certain electronic devices to school.
The policy change allows students to come to school with their personal laptop computer, "netbook" or E-reader.
However, none of the devices may have accessibility to the internet. The devices will not be allowed to connect to the school district's wireless network.
