SULLIVANVILLE, NY (WENY) -- The Sullivanville Neighborhood Watch group held it's second meeting Tuesday night.
The community organization was first established last month after a series of burglaries and break-ins throughout various parts of Chemung and Schuyler counties.
Dave Reynolds, who runs the Village of Horseheads neighborhood watch group, has been helping to get the Sullivanville group up-and-running.
During Tuesday's meeting, topics discussed included lighting, signage, and video cameras to help maintain a watchful eye.
Reynolds says he's talked with county personnel about how to take the next steps.
"[Chemung County Deputy Executive] Mike Krusen has informed me that they can have signs made up through the county for nothing. Andy Avery, I guess, is the man who's going to take care of this for them. He'll be making signs for these people to be able to put all over the community to help them out," Reynolds says.
Also during the meeting, community members discussed other ways to find funding for more projects.
Additionally, the group started a Facebook page to help residents stay up-to-date with meetings and other neighborhood activities.
