The Board of Selectmen on Tuesday approved an approximately $9,000 contract with a Bay Shore, N.Y.-based company to install cameras and a monitoring system at Talmadge Hill Parking Lot. The security measure is intended to protect the New Canaan Police Department’s “impound lot” at the top tier of the Talmadge Hill lot, according to Joe Zagarenski, senior engineer in the Department of Public Works. “This camera will perform double duty, as it will give us the first coverage that we have over in that lot,” Zagarenski told the selectmen at their regular meeting, held at Town Hall and via videoconference. “It’s been our overall goal for security for some years now. This will provide the view of the Talmadge Hill Lot for it.”
First Selectman Dionna Carlson and Selectmen Steve Karl and Amy Murphy Carroll voted in favor of the $9,324.49 contract with A+ Technology & Security.
