Andrew Lemming Federal LMP member for Bowman recently visited the islands to announce the official approval for the $10,000 Federal funding for the SMBI CCTV cameras on our jetties.
The program of installation of the security cameras has been boosted by the Lamb Island Residents Association, which is leading the way for island groups to prop up the infrastructure program.,
They are purchasing an extra camera to cover their jetty car park.
It is believed other islands may participate and add to the security network via individual island groups to take advantage of the CCTV surveillance infrastructure that will be in place via the Federal funding. If you would like more details you may phone 0408872570.
Once the funding is received into the bank account from the Federal Government, installations will commence immediately.
The placement of the cameras is expected to add significantly to the safety and security for people and their vehicles in island car parks.
