ELLISVILLE, Mo. (KMOX) – The flash from red light cameras could soon be a thing of the past in Ellisville. The future of the cameras will be discussed at the city council meeting on Wednesday night.

Council members will hear the results of a review of the cameras which was requested by Mayor Adam Paul at the council’s work session two weeks ago.

The Mayor, who opposes the cameras, says the camera’s give his community “a black eye” and he adds that most residents do too has asked for legal direction from the city attorney and requested statistical data from the city staff.

Ellisville has had several cameras installed since January of 2009. It stopped issuing red light camera tickets about three months ago, after some recent court rulings declared them illegal.
