Background Discussion

During the 4/22/14 Board of County Commission meeting, a motion was made to request the county attorney to review the statutes related to Red Light Cameras and determine whether there is flexibility afforded the local entity.

The attached opinion as rendered by Assistant County Attorney Maureen Sikora relates that that office is comfortable that the statutes are being properly and fairly enforced.

There has been much interest in this topic both by the Board and the public. To provide greater clarity and understanding related to this topic, the Building and Development Services Department along with the Manatee County Sheriff's Department will deliver a presentation explaining the Red Light Camera program in detail.

This presentation will include the history of the camera project, changes in legislation which have impacted the current program, and details on the program implementation, location of cameras, and upcoming changes.
