Pompano Beach City Commission has directed city staff not to bring forward any ordinances concerning red light cameras.

Mayor Lamar Fisher said, “We are going to put the red light camera matter on hold.”

Fisher said that in other cities, income from red light cameras has not covered expenses. People are challenging tickets and winning. The commission wants to see how the matter of red light cameras will play out.

Also, the commission had an extensive discussion on a 10 or 11 acre park in Collier City. A developer has offered to make the land available to the city and it might be developed into a football/soccer field and running track. Vice Mayor George Brummer said he would be interested in seeing it developed because there is a need for a football complex that can handle about 2,000 people on game days. This would be a multi-million dollar development.
