On this week's podcast, Scott Lewis, Sara Libby and Andrew Keatts sit down with VOSD's Jesse Marx to discuss the ongoing controversy behind the smart streetlight program.
When the program was brought to the City Council for approval in 2016, it was presented as a way to save on energy costs and collect environmental and transportation data. Police are now accessing the cameras to aid criminal investigations. There's little oversight, which led the city's public safety committee on Wednesday to recommend a wider surveillance policy.
That segment starts at minute 22.
Also on the podcast, the crew discusses Councilwoman Barbara Bry shift on a housing bond measure.
