Mayor is served with restraining order

The Somerset mayor has been served with a restraining order.

The Commonwealth Journal reports Mayor Eddie Girdler can no longer interfere with the operations or administration of the Lake Cumberland Area Drug Task Force.

Girdler and acting police chief Doug Nelson took measures to separate the city of Somerset from the task force last month.

They did so, by removing several individuals as city employees.

Concerned citizens then requested a restraining order from the task force.

The order states that Girdler violated an agreement to allow the task force to operate in Somerset through June of 2011.
