Due to some recent vandalism at the city’s wastewater facility, the Council has decided to install security cameras at both water and wastewater sites. IRN Security Systems of Grand Rapids Minnesota will install the cameras at a cost of around $9,000 for both facilities. Servers will also be installed at the Police Department so that the city water facilities can be monitored 24/7.
The next City Council meeting is scheduled for October 2nd at 7:00.
