A Wenatchee City Council member says the City could pay for school resource officers with money generated from red light cameras.
Tony Veeder says Police Chief Tom Robbins' suggestion to add more cameras makes sense from a financial standpoint . .
At present the City receives about 500-thousand dollars a year from the red light cameras that have been set up at three intersections.
Robbins is looking to add three more to the system. Veeder says he would support that as a way to restore funding for campus security after cuts to the City budget eliminated the school resource officers last year. . .
No decisions have been made yet. The City Council is holding a work session on Thursday but its not known if the issue of red light cameras is on the agenda for discussion.
