More CCTV Cameras to be Installed in CBD

Council wishes to advise that a total of 14 new CCTV cameras will be installed at various locations across Mount Isa in the coming months.


“Council has awarded a Cairns-based contractor, ECS Services, to install an extra 14 CCTV cameras throughout Mount Isa,” Council Acting Chief Executive Office Emilio Cianetti said.


“The final locations of these cameras have yet to be determined, pending consultation with Mount Isa Police, and they will complement the 21 existing CCTV cameras in the city.


“The work is due to be completed by June 2019 and will be fully funded by the Federal Government under Round 2 of the Safer Communities Fund. The project will cost $185,000.


“To complement the 14 new CCTV cameras, safety floodlighting will also be installed at various locations identified by police as hotspots across the city and CBD, including the rear of Kmart Plaza, the Lookout, the Gardner Street park, Abel Smith Parade, the intersection of Short Street and Kaeser Road, and the Skate Park.


“This project will cost $326,300 and will also be completely funded by the Federal Government, under the Safer Communities Fund.”
