Village to Launch Automatic Gate Opening System in January 2022 (Posted November 9, 2021)
On November 9 the Village announced that a new automatic gate opening system will launch in January.
The system uses license plate reading technology to open the main and south gates automatically. The new system combines convenience and security and helps the police screen non-residents. The police will roll out the new system beginning with the residents, followed by the school, club, and church, replacing tags.
The following charges are not finalized until approved by the Board of Trustees at the November 17 meeting. Comments welcome.
Year one only – As a one-time expense, the residents will cover the cost of the new systems equipment and installation and setup & processing fees - $19,938, which comes close to $30.00 per household. Residents may register an unlimited number of vehicles, including family members and parents, domestic help, and contractors.
All subsequent years – There is a $6,000 annual operating cost included in the yearly budget.

Village Contracts with Security Gate Access Company SafePassage (Posted 9/29/21)
The Village has announced that the Board of Trustees has contracted with SafePassage Solutions for converting, facilitating, and maintaining our planned automatic gates at the main and south entrances.
This feature, which uses automatic license plate readers (ALPRs) to open the gates for registered users automatically, brings a tighter level of security to the community. While simultaneously adding a new level of convenience to entering the Village.
Soon they will be sending Village residents a correspondence asking for basic information on registering their vehicles and providing them with instructions to register guests, special deliveries, domestic employees, vendors, and contractors to pass through the gates automatically for a limited time. Services will be available to TPS, the Tuxedo Club, and Village Employees also.
