The New Milford Town Council has narrowly agreed to spend about $70,000 to beef up security at Lynn Deming Park on Candlewood Lake.  Councilman Peter Mullen switched his vote, from abstaining to yes, in order for the proposal to pass.  The money would come from the Landfill Settlement Fund and be used for gates and cameras.  Concerns were raised last summer with overcrowding and people sneaking in from the woods in an attempted to bypass rules requiring a pass.  New park passes will have technology to open gates and track visits.  The cameras will be placed at the entrance gates and possibly pointed at the woods.  A round the clock security guard will be at the park from Memorial Day through Labor Day and a park ranger will continue to patrol the wood line.
