Board Discusses Live Cams For City Park

By: Shirley Linder, Quill Editor

At the regular meeting of the Stronghurst Village Board on Monday, June 2nd members continued to discuss the possibility of putting live cams in the city park to cut down on vandalism. Tony Anderson said one bid has been received and they are waiting on the second bid. He was also checking into the possibility of placing the equipment themselves. The matter was tabled until the second bid was received and also until they checked into the possibility of the cost being included in the grant that is being applied for.

Yvonne Knapp was present to continue work on a resolution for the village in hopes of receiving a grant for park improvements. Items being discussed are a soft sidewalk around the park and possibly a new curly slide. The board voted to commit no more than $60,000 to the project. On a motion by Deb Hale, seconded by Tony Anderson a motion carried giving President Gary Root authority to sign papers for the grants.

Police report for the month of May included: 151 hours worked; 907 miles on patrol car; 2 traffic stops; 2 uniform traffic tickets; 1 notice to appear; 8 service calls; 6 agency assists; 1 juvenile arrest; 32 business courtesy checks.
