PATCH reported from last week's TC meeting:

The Maplewood Township Committee voted to install new security cameras at Maplecrest Park, at the behest of residents after a park shooting incident.
The Township Committee voted 4-0 in favor of installing three cameras at $5,000 each to be paid through the Open Space Trust Fund to increase security at the park.
Mayor Victor De Luca, Deputy Mayor Kathleen M. Leventhal and Committee members India Larrier and Gerard Ryan all voted in favor. Committeeman Marlon K. Brownlee was unable to attend the meeting.
The cameras are in response to an August incident in which a man fired a handgun into a crowded Maplecrest Park.

It would surely make the park safer for the public. And I guess even if it is quite pricey to install surveillance cameras, it is a wise thing to do so. It is a great crime deterrent.
