McDonald police began a one-year, $13,000 contract last month to enforce the speed limit in West Middletown, Washington County.

McDonald police Chief Mark Dorsey said tonight that his department has agreed to spend 10 hours a week in the tiny borough to help curb speeding on Route 844.

McDonald police also provide services to the Washington County communities of Burgettstown, Midway, Robinson and Independence.

West Middleton is adjacent to Independence and Cross Creek County Park, near Avella.

“It’s a nice fit,” Chief Dorsey said. “When we’re out in Independence Township, we can also do West Middletown.”
