Finance board to weigh cameras Tuesday, review audit Wednesday

Money to pay for security cameras for the town’s Metro-North stations will be up for Board of Finance consideration on Tuesday.

The Department of Public Works transfer request is expected to be taken up by the finance board at its regular meeting, set for 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall.

The public works department wants to transfer $40,000 for surveillance cameras and related equipment that will be installed at the Darien and Noroton Heights stations. The cameras will be used for security and possible crime prevention, as they will observe the platforms and associated parking lots. The Board of Selectmen voted Monday to approve the request.

The finance board will also elect new officers and discuss its five-year forecast.

The finance board will return to Town Hall at 7 p.m. Wednesday for a special meeting to review an audit of the Darien Board of Education special education excess costs in the 2012-13 school year. Following the receipt of an independent, special audit report conducted by the firm CohnReznick, Board of Finance Vice Chairman and Audit Committee Chairman Jon Zagrodzky will lead the meeting to discuss the audit’s findings. Audit partner, Joe Centofanti of CohnReznick and the finance board will take questions from the audience during a public comment portion of the meeting.
