Security upgrades considered for Nashua parking garages
On Wednesday, the aldermanic Finance Committee will review a proposed $140,000 contract with ADT/Tyco Security of Nashua to install special locks, along with updated and additional cameras at the Elm Street and High Street parking garages.
“Technology is moving so quick, so we might as well take advantage of that,” Sousa said Monday. “People are always leery of parking garages, but we are trying to make it easier for people to feel more comfortable there.”
If approved, the stairwell doors will soon be locked; only motorists with key codes will have access to the upper levels of the garages, specifically individuals who lease parking spaces, he said.
Proposed work includes about $69,509 at the Elm Street garage, and about $70,759 at the High Street garage, according to a memo to Mayor Donnalee Lozeau.
More than $740,000 was previously invested in the two garages to make them more structurally sound. And, since 2009, city workers have been personally assigned to take care of the garages.
In addition, new electronic pay-for-space parking systems were installed within the first levels of both garages, replacing the old parking meters.
The Finance Committee meeting will begin at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Nashua City Hall.
