Crestview, Florida’s red light cameras installed, not activated

The installation of red light cameras in Crestview is complete. However, the city council has a few decisions to make before they go live.

City Clerk Elizabeth Roy said at the Nov. 26 council meeting Florida statutes require the city to enact a resolution determining the clerk for a hearing officer.

“I have been getting a lot of input on our cameras forth coming, and I want the best resolution we can come up (with) on this thing,” Councilman Joe Blocker said.

The hearing officer is an attorney that acts on behalf the city when a driver contests the notice. Hearing officers typically have no ties to the municipality that hired them.
