Wouldn't it be great if you could check out the weather and parking at before you left home? Rye Town Deputy Supervisor William Villanova thinks so.
Work on a new security system for Crawford Park is "95 percent installed," Villanova told the Rye Town Council. The system, which cost approximately $12,500, includes a network of closed circuit cameras that could potentially provide a live video feed park residents could access online. Before visiting the park, visitors could check weather conditions and parking availability.
"The expectation is that we will now be able to see and record activity in and around our buildings," said Bishop Nowotnik, Rye Town Confidential Secretary. "It will help to deter vandalism and help us better investigate various claims."
The system has 10 cameras and research on installing a similar system at Rye Town Park- a suggestion made by Deputy Supervisor Villanova at the last town council meeting- is already underway. The price tag for a similar system at Rye Town Park could be more due to the larger size of the parks, said Nowotnik.
