The red-light laws in St. Peters won't be changing any time soon.
Thursday night the board was supposed to vote on a proposed change to the current red-light ordinance, but instead the board unanimously agree to table to motion indefinitely. Mayor Len Pagano said the city just needed more information before deciding the fate of the ordinance.
"We're not getting a clear message," Pagano said.
Pagano said there was some confusion among the board members about what direction to take on the issue. That, combined with the absence of city attorney Randy Weber from the meeting, led the board to table the issue.
"It was brought up at the last meeting and there was just some discomfort with the board," Pagano said.
A no vote would have killed the ordinance, while tabling it allows the board to take it off the table and have discussion at a later date.
"[The cameras] have been in effect since 2004, so it's not a new thing," Pagano said. "We're just waiting on more information."
Pagano told the crowd at the meeting before the public comments portion of the meeting that the board was going to consider tabling the item. One resident still spoke up and encouraged the board to not approve the change.
