Albury council staff want to push ahead with a Lavington security camera system despite failing to find a business to build it.
Under the plan, 48 cameras would operate near the Five Ways, Mate Street, Wagga Road, Urana Road and nearby shopping centres.
A similar system has been in use in central Albury since late 2017.
While 33 companies looked at tender documents for the Lavington project, none submitted a tender.
A recommendation will be put to councillors on Monday that council chief executive Frank Zaknich enters into direct negotiations with any of the companies or other businesses in a bid to secure a contract for the plan.
