Update: Greenport Village approves paying for security cameras

Update (Nov. 25): New exterior security cameras will soon be installed on village properties.

During Monday’s board meeting, members awarded a nearly $40,000 contract to Hampton and North Fork Technology Professionals of Mattituck. The measure passed unanimously.

The exact cost of the cameras is $39,410.

Original story (Nov. 18): The Greenport Village Board is expected to vote on a nearly $35,000 security system contract next week. 

During Monday’s work session, village administrator Paul Pallas said he’s recommending the board approve a contract with Hampton and North Fork Technology Professionals in Mattituck to install exterior security cameras in an effort to deter vandalism.

The buildings slated for the security system project include: Village Hall, waste water treatment plant, power plant, firehouse, skate park and facilities at Mitchell Park, Mr. Pallas said.

The recreation center isn’t included in the plan since the village doesn’t own the building, he added.

The Village Board is scheduled to vote on the contract at its next meeting Nov. 24, at 6 p.m. in the firehouse.
