Beaver County Sheriff Responds To County Commissioners Chairwoman Egley’s Accusations

Beaver County Sheriff Tony Guy this morning responded to accusations made by county commissioners chairwoman Sandie Egley that the sheriff’s department is consistently over budget, has ignored requests to stay within budget guidelines and is unwilling to correct the problem. Sheriff Guy tells Beaver County Radio newsman Pat Septak that yes, he is consistently over budget, but not because he is “unwilling”, rather it’s that he’s “unable” to correct the situation. Guy claims it’s the county that refuses to reimburse him for things he needs to do in the sheriff’s office and that he’s going to continue to be over budget until  the commissioners correct the problem. Sheriff Guy also appeared on Teleforum with Mike Romigh today.
