Floyd County to Use ARPA Funds for Courthouse Cameras, Door Readers

Floyd County will use over $14,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to improve security measures for the courthouse in Charles City.

At their regular meeting Monday, the Board of Supervisors approved just over $8,000 in ARPA money for new courthouse cameras, which Supervisor Roy Schwickerath noted were not part of the courthouse renovation project, but a necessary security enhancement.

 

The board also approved almost $6,000 in ARPA funds to purchase new door access readers, one to replace the unit on the north entrance that sometimes doesn’t function properly and another to add new access through the south door.

Schwickerath added that with more employee parking now available on the south side of the new law enforcement center, the new door readers provide more reasonable after hours access to employees on both sides of the courthouse.
