Spokane City Council to Debate Changing Red-Light Camera Law

The Spokane City Council is debating whether to change the law to allow them to spend red-light camera fines on projects unrelated to traffic safety.

The council already approved a new funding breakdown of red-light camera money for 2014, but the city never changed the law that requires them to spend revenues beyond the cost to maintain the cameras only on traffic safety projects.

The Spokesman-Review has the details.
