The City Council will consider installing security cameras at its community centers at the request of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Director Donnie Snow.
Snow entered a request to waive formal bidding on security cameras and to work with ClearCom to install security cameras at the centers.
The council will take up the request at its meeting Tuesday. It likely will be referred to committee for discussion.
The request comes in the middle of a budget process that could see one community center director laid off, but some extra money for programming at the centers. The public has rallied to support the community centers, and Alderman Michael Shields will ask that money for the cut director's position be reinstated.
Snow's request may be another way the city can invest in its community centers to create a safe environment for everyone to use.
