Security camera to be installed at new park
Daily News

A new security camera, whose feed can be viewed via YouTube, will be installed near the future South Cross Street Park.

The council Tuesday night approved a new camera, which will be installed at the west/northwest corner of the building on the site's south side.

Parks and Recreation Superintendent Mike Shimer said the Weber family, who owns the building, agreed to donate the space for free.

The camera and video recording system were approved by the council at cost of $2,977.97. It is expected to be installed by Robinson Computers.

Shimer said that the recording system will allow residents to view the live feed online. Photographs per minute will also be recorded by the system.

"This will allow you to watch it on YouTube," Shimer said.

Viewers can watch as the mural is painted on the wall near the location, and can also view the feed to see if any is vandalizing the park.

"It gives us security in that area," Shimer said.

Shimer also reminded the council that the Robinson Easter Egg Hunt will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 20 at Washington Park. A total of about 11,000 eggs will be stuffed by the Lawrence-Crawford Association for Exceptional Citizens. Shimer thanked Marathon Petroleum, the Robinson Key Club, Hershey and the Elks Club and others for their contributions for the event.
