On Nov. 25 Council directed staff that the installation of video surveillance cameras in the downtown core to assist in crime control was to be made a top priority.

This will be a public process by way of survey to see if residents are in favour of cameras or not,” said Jim Hendricks City of Fernie CAO. “Staff has done a bunch of the leg work already we have talked to a local supplier. Once the rest of the background info is in place we can pull the trigger.”

The City of Fernie is inviting citizens to submit their comments to Council on the use of surveillance cameras by completing an online survey at www.fernie.ca.
