For the time being, drivers in Clive won’t be ticketed by red light cameras. Thursday night the city council rejected the proposed five-year contract with the company that operates those cameras.
The Clive city council voted three-to-two against renewing its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems. The original contract expired at the end of 2012.
Since then the city has continued that agreement on a quarterly basis until a new contract was settled upon.
Because of the vote, the Clive Police Department says it will temporarily halt processing red light camera violations that happened after 8:09 Thursday night.
The city ordinance allowing red light camera enforcement is still in place.
Council members directed staff to renegotiate the contract with Redflex for a shorter term and to bring a proposal back to them.
Clive police say violation notices that were previously issued still need to be paid.
