WSFA TV viewers will soon be looking at views from downtown Tallassee on the station's ALFA Sky Vision segments. The tower cam is located on top of the Tallassee police station on Barnett Boulevard.

The Tallassee Chamber of Commerce is planning a dedication for November 18 at 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. to be featured on WSFA's midday newscasts.

"Tallassee, the Treasure on the Tallapoosa, has been the best-kept secret in central Alabama," Chamber president Dale Segrest said. "Tower Cam will help us let the world know we are here."

PrimeSouth Bank donated the funding needed to have the device installed.

“This is a great opportunity for the city of Tallassee," PrimeSouth president Dave Baggett said. "We are proud to call Tallassee home and are honored to sponsor the skycam. The skycam will capture images of the river, which is a beautiful asset for Tallassee and a great way to show off our town."

In addition to Tallassee, WSFA has tower cams in Montgomery, Alex City, Andalusia, Prattville, Selma, and Troy.
