SF Town Board votes to explore expansion of camera surveillance

SENECA FALLS — Organizational meetings for a governmental body often take 10-15 minutes.

The Town Board took more than an hour to reorganize for 2019 before Wednesday’s regular meeting began.

One reason was a surprise resolution from board member Lou Ferrara Jr. to explore the addition of new security cameras to monitor all town properties and facilities. While it did not appear to have anything to do with the board’s reorganization, Ferrara requested the matter be discussed during that time frame.

“Our security system is lacking. There are no cameras at the water treatment plant, and the ones we have are lacking,” Ferrara said. “I feel we need surveillance cameras on all town properties that feed video into the police department for monitoring purposes. I think we’ll all sleep better knowing our property, equipment and employees are being protected.”
