Increasing security and safety in Dewey Beach was part of last night’s Commissioners meeting as they discussed adding 8 surveillance cameras around town. The cost would be about $90,000. However, many people support the plan to make the town safer and town police say that the cameras could help control crime in areas where existing cameras don’t cover. The new cameras could be up and running this summer. The commissioners expect to vote on the issue during their June 10 meeting. The commissioners also discussed purchasing extra barricades to help with crowd control. The cost for those is about $10,000. Dewey Business Partnership has agreed to help cover the cost for the barricades.
