Finance Committee Approves Port Security Camera System



The City of Sturgeon Bay is a step closer to having a waterfront surveillance camera system in place.

That's after the Finance/Purchasing & Building Committee Tuesday selected Green Bay-based BAYCOM, Inc. for the job. BAYCOM submitted the lower of two bids the city received.

Police Chief Arleigh Porter says Sturgeon Bay's set-up will closely mirror the one in Marinette.

The project will take place in two phases to ensure the city doesn't go over the amount of the 2009 grant it received from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which was $289,445.78.

BAYCOM's bid, which will include the installation of wireless cameras at 13 key waterfront locations from Pinney Park to the Bayview Bridge, came in at $251,626.40.

As Phase I nears completion and exact costs are known the remainder of the grant money will be committed in Phase II for additional cameras.

The committee's recommendation still needs the approval of the Common Council.

If aldermen give the go-ahead the system is expected to be up and running by April.
