Traffic camera ordinance sent back to committee

Marion Star Staff Report • December 8, 2008

MARION — Marion City Council on Monday voted to send back to committee two ordinances that would allow the city to move forward with installing traffic cameras at designated high-accident intersections.

Following the motion of Councilman Ralph Cumston, who cited “numerous questions” about the issue, council voted 7 to 2 to put the ordinances back on the agenda of the municipal services, parks and recreation committee.
Council members Ayers Ratliff and Jason Schaber voted against the motion to return the ordinances to committee. Both said they would have preferred council reject the ordinances, rather than send the legislation back for further review.
