Ottumwa to install cameras downtown


OTTUMWA (KWWL) -- Ottumwa is moving forward with a plan to install cameras in downtown to deter crime.  The City Council voted to allow the police chief to enter into agreements with business and building owners to put cameras on their property.  Part of the deal requires the business or building owner to pay the cost of electricity to run the cameras.  After determining locations and drawing up agreements, a request for proposals will be put out for the installation and equipment, which is funded through a grant.  The project should be finished by this summer.
