The Hagerstown City Council Tuesday evening unanimously approved the introduction of ordinances that would designate school speed-camera zones and approve a loan to buy larger recycling bins for city residents.
The five-member council approved the introduction of an ordinance that establishes citywide school zones, which was first presented by Police Chief Arthur Smith last Tuesday.
The school zone ordinance would establish speed limits at more than a dozen locations near Hagerstown schools that could be sites for new speed-monitoring cameras. Signs will be posted in the designated areas, under the proposed ordinance.
Another proposed ordinance to authorize the use of speed-monitoring cameras in the school zones is also slated for a vote at the Jan. 31 regular session.
