Petition to repeal IC red-light cameras filed too late

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

An affidavit to commence initiative or referendum proceedings repealing the city's red-light cameras ordinance was filed June 22, but City Attorney Eleanor Dilkes says the affidavit came too late.

Iowa City residents Aleksey Gurtovoy and Martha Hampel are listed as the two petitioners.

However, Dilkes said the affidavit is untimely because it was not filed "within 60 days after final adoption of the measure sought to be reconsidered, or subsequently at any time more than two years after such final adoption," according to city documents.

The Iowa City City Council adopted the red-light-camera ordinance Feb. 21 on a 4-3 vote.
