The city of Morris municipal services facility, which houses city hall and the Morris police department, will see an upgrade in technology, thanks to an agreement approved by the city council on Tuesday.
The purchase agreement between the city and MidCo Systems of Burr Ridge will cost $105,583, and will provide the city’s administrative builing with a systems update, new cameras, and an upgraded security system.
“This is for a whole multitude of different things here in IT in the city, from upgrading our cameras [at City Hall] that are analog to high def, and also recordings for security,” Mayor Richard Kopczick said. “It’s also for the programing of our doors.”
The mayor said certain entrances for the police department were already upgraded, and this change will bring the other doors up to date.
“This is all 10-year-old technology right now that we’ve got, and there just comes a time when you have to re-do that. And it’s actually less than we had anticipated.”
The agreement includes purchase and installation for CCTV dome and fixed cameras, base units, hardware, and access system software.
Kopczick noted that MidCo is the same company that installed the orginial wiring and security at City Hall when it was constructed.
The motion to approve the purchase agreement passed unanimously.
