Greenville to purchase more surveillance cameras

Melanie Lekocevic reports in the Greenville Pioneer that Greenville Town Supervisor Paul Macko wants to install two new surveillance cameras in the town park after two alleged robberies there recently. “We have had some issues with some activity in the park and it seems to be going on where we don’t have cameras, like behind the South Barn, where the dog park is,” Macko said at the November meeting of the town board. “I would really like to buy some cameras and see if we can install them.” But the internet coverage in the park may not be enough to support W-Fi cameras. Still, Town Councilperson Travis Richards made a resolution for spending up to $500 on two more cameras and related equipment, which the board adopted unanimously. Macko said, “I am hoping that around the holidays there will be some buys and we can get the equipment we need, and then first thing in the spring we would get them installed.” Read more about this story in the Greenville Pioneer.
