Plans to install a security camera system in downtown Riverhead have run into another setback, with the Riverhead Town Board now extending the deadline for bid submissions from Dec. 18 to Jan. 21.

Board members said several bidders had asked for the extension so the bidders would have more time to submit a bid.

The board had rejected an earlier round of proposals when it received only one response.

The town is seeking proposals for an internet protocol wireless video security system, with cameras installed at eight specific locations in downtown Riverhead.
