It's lights, camera, cleanup in Sylvester

August 13, 2007

Sylvester -- If you're in violation of a city ordinance in the city of Sylvester, you might want to clean things up, especially if your yard is camera shy.

A hi-tech effort is underway in Sylvester aimed at keeping the city clean.

Sylvester Code Enforcement Officer Angel Gray has utilized video cameras as a way of monitoring city ordinance violations, and so far she says it's been successful.

"This started a month-and-a-half ago, and I toured every district. I had a passenger, and he held the camera as we just rode down the street. We just videotaped what the camera could see down the street," said Gray.

Gray added that only yards and sidewalks were videotaped. She added that the response from the community has been positive.

So far, only 4 code enforcement warnings have been issued, and no citations have been handed out.
