Transponder / Barcode Reader gate

Will the new barcode reader gate be open 24/7  I hope so


  1. It seems to me that the current regulations for transponder hours would apply. I don't know that the use of a bar code or transponder would change the hours when it would be valid. Security would be able to advise you about that.

  2. The system( Bar codes,replacing
    transponders) has no bearing on
    the policy in effect...It was done
    for security purposes, to insure
    those using a vehicle so equipped
    and it's driver,legitimately belonged here. UCO can provide you
    with more details...(VP Gluszak or
    ED Black)signed: A member of Security Comm.

  3. VP Gluszak/ED Black: What do you say?? I would say that the new system if newer and more secured. I would hope we are putting in something that is secure 24/7. IF NOT WHY??

  4. Hi all,

    Perhaps if we used a shadoof to raise and lower the gate arm, we would be more secure??

  5. I'm for the shadoof, all in favor of the shadoof, please reply.

  6. I there a doofus to operate it, or 4 doofuses ?

  7. Hi Elaine,

    The budget will only allow for a one doofus shadoof.

    Of course, we will have to divert a canal!!

  8. Let's just give me a "SPECIAL" barcode that only lets me in. I promise I will not rob anyone or bring any undesireable people in.

  9. Please remember that the security committee voted to reopen the lane and the Officers voted to close it again.
    Committees are advisory and really recommend. While our officers frequently receive responses from their constituents and often proceed on the responses they receive, as they should.

    Let’s consider the pros and cons:
    1 Our security team is spread thin for this Square mile area from 11:00 pm to 7:00 am.
    2 Many neighboring communities do the very same thing
    when the security staff is reduced from daytime schedules to the late night schedule.
    3 If someone hits the transponder gate arm, a rover goes to that gate to repair it – leaving the village less protected, just when they are most needed on patrol.
    4 With only one lane in and one lane out – we have greater security.

    1 A few residents are required to show their ID to enhance security for the greater good at a time that our security footprint is at its smallest.
    These are the reasons our Officers voted to close the transponder lane. I hope that helps everyone understand that sometime civic duty must win the argument.

  10. Let’s consider the pros and cons:
    1.The automatic "eye" keeps the gate closed unless it see's a barcode or transponder.
    2. It will not leave it post
    3. There is always a security team AND a "eye" guarding the automatic gate.
    4. The "eye" can always tell you WHO and WHAT time a resident comes in. THIS IS BETTER INFORMATION!
