LICENSE PLATE READERS IN THE VILLAGE
After recent burglaries in the Village, Mayor Sean Haggerty asked two license plate reader companies to come to the meeting tonight to explain how the license readers work and any other information that would enlighten everyone. A+ Technology and NDI Recognition Systems separately explained how the recognition systems continuously scan and read license plates under various lighting and weather conditions. Resident Malinda Gillan was opposed to the cameras, as she felt it was an invasion of privacy and did not want anyone to know her whereabouts. She also believed that it was a waste of money considering only six houses have been broken into. Mayor Sean Haggerty explained that this was just a preliminary meeting to find out how the scanners operate. If at such time, the Village Board decides to go ahead with the cameras, a formal bid process would take place.
Motion to go into executive session made by Mayor Sean Haggerty, seconded by Trustee John Lippmann and confirmed by all.
