HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — A Hoover subdivision is taking steps to increase security after an Iraq war veteran, was killed outside his home earlier this year.
Lake Cyrus residents will have the chance to vote on security options tonight including surveillance cameras, a gate system and security patrol.
The ballot breaks down the cost and describes each option.
A lot of residents have installed their own security cameras since the killing of Mike Gilotti.
The incident has been a nightmare for residents living here who say they don’t want to relive it again.
“I was taking my pistol with me to my car, to crank it up and even out to check the mail, even when it got dark in the evening so I was in that frame of mind for the next couple of weeks and I shouldn’t have to be that way,” said Lake Cyrus resident Gregory Moon.
An entire household counts as one vote. Ballots must be turned in by November 18th.
