Athens City Council will meet in committees Monday night to address concerns regarding police officer body cameras and annual paving. 

The City and Safety Services Committee will discuss body cameras for Athens Police Department officers. The council originally considered a plan for purchase in February 2018 that would implement the cameras. 

According to a previous Post report, the potential five-year contract would have cost the city about $106,000 and included stun guns as well as body cameras, but was not instituted at the time.

In addition, the Transportation Committee will speak about improvements to parking garages’ interiors as well as annual paving of uneven roads in the city.

The Committee of the Whole will amend a municipal refuse and recycling contract to reflect the recent extension of a compost pilot program, which the council voted on at last week’s meeting.
