MEETING OPENED TO THE PUBLIC:
A resident who wanted to report a suspicious vehicle to the Constabulary was bothered by the fact that he wasn’t able to reach anyone. All he could do was leave a message on the Constable office voice mail. The Mayor responded that our goal is to have a phone and I-pad in the Constable car so that they can receive calls and monitor the security cameras. We are waiting for the AT&T service on the cell tower to be fully operational. The delay in getting things done is upsetting to some residents. Discussion followed on getting in touch with the Constables in situations which may or may not be considered emergencies. The best way is to call 911 because when the dispatcher sends the call to SCPD, our Constables will hear the call on their radios, which are more reliable than cell phones.
There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 9:15 pm
