More security cameras with improved ways to view them are being added to the Village of Waterville’s public sites.
Cameras will be installed at Village Hall, the Village Park and Babbott Park. Some of these places have them and will receive additional coverage.
DPW Superintendent Jamie Bechy and Village Clerk Gayle Barnes told the Village Board last week that the feed from the cameras will be accessible by assigned cell phones. The cameras will also record footage for later viewing.
In addition, a webcam at the Village Park will let people see that area in real time.
Also at the meeting, the Board approved the annual Judicial Records audit of Village Justice Robert McNamara done by Mayor Gene Ostrander.
Bechy said the Village received a state grant for $32,837 to address flooding near the Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Village and Oneida County Soil and Water put in for the funds.
Work will be done in the Spring since the Village’s permission to be in the creek along Route 315 ended Friday.
The Waterville United Methodist Women’s Club received permission to sell pies at Village Hall on Election Day Nov. 7.
