WAPELLA — Although Wapella Village Board’s Tuesday agenda last week included an item to consider overriding the board president’s veto of a park security camera system proposal, discussion concluded without a vote.
Trustee Suzanna Holland proposed the camera system for the park during a meeting earlier this summer. The proposal was intended to help reduce vandalism at the park and provide general security.
The board voted to install the system at a cost of about $3,800, but board president Rich Karr vetoed the vote, and the plan has been stalled since. While some residents back the security camera proposal, other residents feel it is an unnecessary expense. Still other residents expressed concern about how video files from the system might be used and who would have ultimate control of the system.For the complete article see the 08-27-2013 issue.
