The Regional District has returned answers to the questions posed in a previous article “Big Brother's Cameras”.
A Mr. Tim Dueck gave voice for the government indicating:
- The cameras do have an impact on users’ behaviour.
- The cameras are functioning.
- The cameras were installed about 5 years ago. They cost about a $1000 per camera plus a couple of hundred for the DVR.
- The RDKB pays the United Church an annual rental fee for hosting the cameras.
A visitor to the Greenwood recycle bin on Thanksgiving Day gave a different voice to the situation. She said, “I don’t think the cameras are working too well! The bin is full of garbage.”
