Playground, the cameras highlight the efforts of the village | News, Sports, Jobs
SILVER CREEK – Mayor Jeff Hornburg provided an update on the playground equipment they are exploring and mentioned he met with John Curtis of JCD Design this month to discuss further a possible purchase.
“If we do this, and that’s a if, we’re not going to do it until the youth recess,” said the mayor. “We want things to be ordered so they can get here on time. They have a sale right now that runs until the end of June.
The equipment under study includes two distinct play structures, one intended for young people aged 2 to 5 and the other for 5 to 12 years old.
Additionally, the Silver Creek camera system is close to being fully operational, with village council member Stephen Romanik saying the “meat and potatoes” of it went up last week, and it was able to be connected remotely. “We have 20 cameras in use right now,” said Romanik. “We’ll be able to do facial recognition and everything with those in the park, and it’s amazing the clarity you get on them.”
Hanover Town board member Lou Pelletter was present at the meeting and warned the village that any playground equipment it buys should be incredibly durable lest it be destroyed. Romanik said park cameras should also help ease that fear.
“We’ll be able to do facial recognition and everything with those in the park, and it’s amazing the clarity you get on them.”
“As far as playground equipment goes, when it goes up, if it gets destroyed, we’re going to find out who’s doing it,” said Romanic.
The Silver Creek kayak launch has also been relocated for the season, meaning people can use it at their leisure during the summer season.
The next Silver Creek Village Council meeting will be Monday, June 6 at 7 p.m.
