CORRECTION: Council to Discuss Red Light Cameras at Final 2012 Meeting

Of note on tonight's short agenda is a discussion of automated red light enforcement systems, an option made available by recent state legislation.

Norristown Municipal Council meets tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Norristown Municipal Hall, 235 E. Airy Street for the final time in 2012.

The agenda is short with scheduled adoptions the 2013 Municipal Budget, the 2013 Community Development Block Grant budget and changes to the zoning map for the former Kennedy-Kenrick High School site among other business.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of automated red light enforcement systems, or red light cameras. The state legislature passed a bill in June giving certain Montgomery County municipalities the option to adopt the practice and some local municipalities (like Abington) are considering it. Until now, municipal council has not addressed the issue.

You can download the full agenda for tonight's meeting in our PDF section and check back at 6:30 p.m. for a live stream of the meeting.

[Norristown Patch mistakenly printed that tonight's meeting would start at 7:30 p.m. The meeting actually starts at 6:30 p.m. The story has been corrected.]

Instead of red light cameras, how about council discusses a Chief of Police?!

They are only willing to spend money on things that will make them more money, this pathetic so many unsolved shootings and they're talking about putting red light cameras in.

2012 is coming to a close and our Chief of Police and his Captain are retiring. Why is a search not on the agenda? We don't want an interim appointment. That would not be good for anyone but here they go, delaying approval of a search. How disgusting. Gary Simpson - what is up??? Why are you dragging your feet?

The whole norristown council Is ruining this town...I know the last mayor messed up but we need a mayor elected by a majority of us to take control of the real issues and not red light cameras,street scraping projects etc... Norristown is doomed going in this direction.

Police chief is nothing but crap. Why hire the Captain back when he is going to collect his retirement pay plus the chief's salary. It will happen
