The town of Dewey Beach has awarded a contract for installing its surveillance camera system.
Town Manager Marc Appelbaum tells WGMD that during last Saturday’s Board of Commissioners meeting, Commissioner Gary Mauler recommended that the contract be awarded to Tele-Techtor of Maryland, based in Columbia, Maryland. That recommendation was approved by a unanimous five to nothing vote. Appelbaum has been authorized to sign a contract with TTM for around $98,000, and says that’s scheduled to be done by Monday. He says TTM will be in town within the next week or two, and installation of the cameras is scheduled to take three or four days.
In June, the Commissioners approved spending $95,000 for a camera system based on months of study and a recommendation by the Public Safety Task Force. After that, Commissioner Mauler, who used to work for Northrup Grauman, did some research to address technical and specification issues.
