DAN CEARNS The Standard

KAWARTHA LAKES: The City of Kawartha Lakes is helping to fund a surveillance camera initiative being taken on by the Lindsay Downtown Business Improvement Association (LDBIA).

At a meeting on Tuesday, February 20th, councillors approved a motion to provide $40,000, from the City’s General Contingency Reserve, to install cameras in downtown Lindsay.

“The total project budget is estimated at approximately $80,000, of which $28,902 has been secured through the 2023-24 intake of the Ontario CCTV Grant Fund (through the Kawartha Lakes Police Service (KLPS)), and the balance to be paid by the LDBIA membership. The LDBIA has confirmed the cameras will be their property, and they will coordinate the installation, monitoring and maintenance of the cameras and supporting systems. The LDBIA will work with the City and obtain necessary approvals for siting and installing any of the cameras and supporting infrastructure within the City’s road allowances,” a report from CAO Ron Taylor stated.

Ward 7 Councillor Charlie McDonald said, he thinks this project is “going to prove to be very useful for our downtown and maybe more downtowns to come.”

Mr. Taylor said, he feels “this is a good solid investment in the downtown.”
