CRYSTAL FALLS—At the Dec. 9 meeting, the Crystal Falls City Council listened to presentations by 906 Technologies and DS Tech regarding a new security system to be installed in and around the City Hall building and the power plant with the possibility of expanding the system to other locations.
Following the presentations, the council made a motion to go ahead with the plans by 906 Technologies, based out of Marquette. The new system will come with a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
This new system will allow city officials and the police department to pull up live feeds on their smartphones and computers at these locations.
The hope is that this will help decrease the random acts of vandalism and robbery as well as provide accurate recordings of these activities.
The City Council approved a motion to allow Mountain Engineering to start surveying a few areas around Crystal Falls.
The city would like to survey the property lines by the boardwalk with the intent of eventually expanding the boardwalk further down the river.
It would also like to survey around the golf course for logging purposes and an area by Runkle Lake.
The council voted to purchase a new boiler for the City Hall building under City Manager Dorothea Olson’s recommendation.
