Kenneth City debates future of red-light cameras Wednesday

KENNETH CITY — This town's red-light cameras — the first in the county — could be on the chopping block. Kenneth City council members are scheduled to discuss the cameras' future at a workshop Wednesday.

The option of eliminating the cameras altogether arose in a month ago during a discussion on how the town should comply with a change in state law requiring municipalities that have the cameras to provide a way to appeal the citation earlier in the process. Currently, motorists who receive a citation can go to traffic court only after the $158 fine has risen to $264.

Between the change and the upcoming renewal of the contract with ATS, the company that provides Kenneth City's cameras, Mayor Teresa Zemaitis said it might be time to get rid of the cameras. The workshop is open to the public. It will be at 7 p.m. in the Kenneth City Community Hall, 4600 58th St. N.
