WILKES-BARRE – Board members of Hawkeye Security Solutions voted on Wendesday afternoon to hire an attorney to help with the process of considering whether the board should dissolve the non-profit group.
Hawkeye officials said that the last contract providing revenue is expected to expect to expire this week, and the non-profit only has around $23,000 in its bank account.
Assistant city attorney Bill Vinsko told Newswatch 16 that Wilkes-Barre is preparing for the possibility of taking control of the network of 300 surveillance cameras in January, and that the cash-strapped operation has a better chance at funding if it is operated by a city, rather than a non-profit organization.
