SEVIERVILLE — The Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a service agreement with Flock Group Inc., for license plate detection cameras and access to the company’s technology platform during their regular meeting Monday night.
The cities of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge as well as other surrounding communities already have agreements in place with the company. The program will give the City of Sevierville access to the network for these jurisdictions as well as a nationwide network. The cost of the program is $11,000.
“I highly recommend this system,” Mayor Robbie Fox said.
The board also approved a request from Police Chief Joseph Manning to reapply for the Department of Justice Bulletproof Vest Partnership Grant Program.
“Each year we have to reapply through the Department of Justice in order to get up to 50% reimbursement on our vests,” Manning said.
The board also approved rezoning of property on Bogart Drive from Low Density Residential District and Arterial Commercial District to High Density Residential District; property at 719 Eastgate Road from High Density Residential District to Intermediate Commercial District; and property on Veterans Boulevard from Low Density Residential District to Arterial Commercial District.
