Arnold, Mo., tables discussion on red-light cameras
ARNOLD, Mo. -- The first city to install red-light cameras in Missouri tabled a discussion about whether the cameras should remain.
A group in Arnold called "Don't Tread on Me" collected nearly 1,000 signatures, seeking to get the cameras out of Arnold or to allow voters to decide the issue in April.
Arnold's city council voted 5-2 Thursday night to table a discussion until June. Council member Randy Crisler said he believes the petition was a ploy to improve one candidate's chances at the polls. Another council member, Matthew Hay, said voters deserve to have a say on the issue.
City officials said Arnold's status as a standard third-class city means the referendum petition in the community is not valid under state law.
