Council authorizes traffic camera negotiations

LAFAYETTE - The Lafayette City-Parish Council has voted to give City-Parish President Joey Durel the approval to begin renegotiating the contract for the city's red-light camera enforcement program.

Despite that vote on Tuesday, the future of the red-light cameras is uncertain, and the council is scheduled to decide next month whether to end the automated enforcement program.

Durel was not required to seek council approval to begin renegotiating the contract with the private company that manages the program, Redflex Traffic Systems.

But Durel had said he asked for the vote on Tuesday to gauge the council's feelings on the issue because he did not want to begin negotiating a contract that the council might shoot down next month.

The Redflex contract expires in June.
