The City of Fort Wright is proud to announce its implementation of a Safe Internet Shopping Zone at the City Building. The Fort Wright City Building located at 409 Kyles Lane now has 24-hour video surveillance on the main parking lot area adjacent to the intersection of Highland Pike and Kyles Lane. Fort Wright City Council decided to pursue this project in light of numerous unfortunate incidents nationwide where criminal activities occurred when people met to complete a transaction for items that were being bought and sold via on-line sources like Craigslist.

Per Mayor Dave Hatter, “The Fort Wright City Building is a very public location with high visibility which makes it a safe place for these transactions. The addition of the video surveillance equipment adds a layer of safety that should make everyone involved in the transaction feel much safer. Our location makes this a great spot for residents in both Ohio and Kentucky to meet and safely transact their business. We are excited to offer this service to the region.”

The idea of the Safe Internet Shopping Zone is to conduct person-to-person sales of items purchased over the Internet. The area is not designed to serve as an area where people leave items for others to view before making a purchase decision. Unfortunately, any items left on the City Building lot without permission of City officials will result in its removal at the owner’s expense.
