Liberty planning speed cam use on SR 11, I-80
Township Trustees Arnie Clebone and Greg Cizmar approved a resolution Thursday that will allow police officers to use speed cameras on state Route 11 and Interstate 80.
Although the weekly morning meetings were planned for discussion purposes, according to Martha Weirick, township administrative assistant, Clebone contends trustees will vote on resolutions that are time-sensitive.
Some residents have said they don’t like the meeting time because they are unable to attend, but Clebone said it’s convenient to meet before the work day.
The speed-camera program revenue will be split evenly between the police department and the general fund, Clebone said. Details on fees and collection are to be worked out.
“The police department is in need of money, so we are going to pursue it,” he said.
