Fremont to keep red light cameras

catredlightcameraThe City Council just voted unanimously to approve a seven year contract with RedFlex, the company that has installed red light cameras at intersections throughout the city.

One gent spoke out against the contract.

Fremont has been making money off the system, but no all cities do. Union City has been losing money, and last I checked was considering dropping its red light program.

Fremont will be able to terminate its agreement with RedFlex whenever it wants, according to the city.

The council is now hearing a wonkish report about how to get developers to produce more affordable housing. Then there promises to be a sharp debate over the Police Department’s proposal for a new tow-truck vendor.
