Security cameras for three parks in $200,000 project
MORE security cameras will be installed in Maryborough and Hervey Bay's parks in a $200,000 project.
Fraser Coast open space portfolio councillor Darren Everard said the cameras would go into high-profile parks where there had been incidents in the past.
"Cameras will be installed at the All Abilities Playground and Scarness Park on the Hervey Bay foreshore and in Queens Park at Maryborough," he said.
"Now that the funding has been approved, council will call for quotes to design and install the cameras."
Cr Everard said the State Government had contributed $80,000 towards the project.
He said footage from council's existing network of cameras had been helpful in identifying people who misbehaved.
