CLARKS GREEN — Police protection will change in the new year for a borough in Lackawanna County.

Clarks Green borough council voted Wednesday night to contract Clarks Summit police for five years.

South Abington Township’s police department has patrolled Clarks Green since 1984.

Starting in January, Clarks Summit police will take over.

South Abington Township supervisors say the change will save Clarks Green about $50,000 to $60,000.
