JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – The push for speed cameras in school zones in the City of Jamestown has been halted.

In April, Jamestown City Council voted to move forward with a project to install Speed enforcement traffic cameras in school zones.

Since lawmakers went forward with the decision, complications came up with the contractor tasked with implementing the system.

As the city’s Attorney Elliot Raimondo tells us, the city is looking to move in a new direction.

“The City of Jamestown’s still pursuing speed zone cameras,“ explained Raimondo. “Obviously there have been some safety concerns around the schools. The specific contractor the city did approve the contract with last year was uncommunicative, so we chose to terminate that contract with that company.”     

What’s next for the school zone cameras? City leaders will work alongside state representatives  Assemblyman Andy Goodell and Senator George Borrello to pass state legislation aiding the installment of speed enforcement systems.
