Monroe moves to end camera program

It looks like Monroe will make good on its promise to drop traffic-enforcement cameras later this year.

The City Council is expected to vote next week to authorize the mayor to send a letter to the contractor, Arizona-based Redflex Traffic Systems, notifying the company that the city does not intend to renew the contract.

The council agenda documents say, “… the City instead intends to allow the Agreement to terminate upon the conclusion of said term.”

We’ll have more coverage next week.

Monroe won an appeal in its complicated court case about the cameras in February.

Monroe council meetings start at 7 p.m. Tuesdays at City Hall, 806 W. Main St. You can read agendas and minutes on the city website.

If it happens, that will leave Lynnwood as the sole city in Snohomish County using traffic-enforcement cameras.
