City of Merritt to install security cameras at the Nicola Valley Memorial arena.
During budget deliberations, manager Dave Zackall told mayor and council at least five are needed.
He suggested in the mezzanine, inside and outside the front lobby, at the back door where the ice cleaner exits, and in the Ammonia plant room.
"We've had some vandalism over the years, and an issue with theft from the dressing rooms. Having the cameras in place would allow us to have more security than currently exists."
The cameras are among $67,000 worth of improvements for the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena which have been included the City of Merritt's 2018 budget.
Before they can go in, a privacy impact study will need to occur.
