Cameras, Cameras, Everywhere And All The Boards Did Think
The Grays Harbor Transit Authority discussed security measures this week. Board member, and County Commissioner Mike Wilson said “Rick Scott [had a vendor] show him how their program works. So they took him to one of the malls and said ‘pick a car out, out there’ so Scott said he picked a car way off in the distance and they were able to zoom all the way in to the license plate.”
Commissioner Terry Willis said the county has seen quotes averaging $3,000 per camera, depending on features.
