PENTICTON - The City of Penticton is in the market for video surveillance equipment.
The city released a request for proposal in late November, seeking suppliers to provide, install and maintain video surveillance remote devices in city facilities.
City Communications Officer Simone Blais says video surveillance is part of the municipality’s general risk management initiatives within the city.
“We want to ensure we are protecting city assets,” Blais says in an email.
The city has identified places such as the library and museum complex where some security issues have been experienced in the past. The resulting incidents of mischief, property damage and other nuisances cause a drain on taxpayer-funded resources, she says.
The request closes this week. Blais says the city hopes to install video monitoring systems in the library and museum early in the new year. Cost of two camera systems will be verified as part of the proposal process, Blais says.
