FARMINGTON -- Keeping a watchful eye on every nook and cranny of the $15.7 million Davis County Administrative Office Building is going to take more security cameras than initially anticipated.
The Davis County Commission recently approved a $15,000 contract with Stanley Security Solutions for the installation of additional electronic security equipment to the new three-story office building at 61 S. Main St., Farmington.
The building opened in November 2012.
The contract includes adding cameras, door locks and a control panel "to provide more complete coverage of our facility," Davis County Information Systems Director Mark Langston said.
The contract with the Salt Lake City-based company is effective immediately.
The additional security is warranted to provide complete coverage of all accesses and extra security to the vital records rooms, Langston said.
"When you move into (a building), and you're in there physically, it is a little different than what it was on the (blueprint plans)," Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn said.
In addition to installing more electronic security camera equipment to the new building, county crews have also been salvaging what electronic security equipment they can out from the old library that is eventually to be razed.
The electronic equipment salvaged from that building will serve as surplus electronic equipment for other county public facilities, Langston said.
It was necessary for the electronic security system equipment in the old library to be removed immediately, because that building, erected in 1964, Langston said, is scheduled for asbestos removal in the next few weeks. Asbestos must be removed from the old library before the structure can be razed.
