MALTA – More swipe-card entry systems may be added to entrances at Kishwaukee College, but details still have to be worked out before more discussions happen, college officials said.
Details on the project were not brought up explicitly during the regularly scheduled board meeting at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, but the topic was briefly discussed by trustees beforehand, Kishwaukee College spokeswoman Kayte Hamel said. She said the school hasn’t gotten information back from the company on pricing for the new systems.
“We’re just kind of investigating what that would look like,” Hamel said.
According to a facilities projects report attached to the agenda for the meeting, a plan will be developed to convert additional doors to the swipe-card option this summer to provide better security. The project’s completion is set for the fall semester, according to the report.
A few campus entryways currently are equipped with swipe card, including doors to the Student Center, the Library Atrium, the B1200 nursing entrance and a room that is being converted into an athletic department office suite, the report said.
Information about the cost of the previous system’s installation was not readily available after Daily Chronicle put in a request.
