<br /> <br />City of Casselberry <br /> <br />NEWS RELEASE <br /> <br /> <br />95 Triplet Lake Drive, Casselberry, Florida 32707 <br /> <br />Steve Olson • Community Relations • (407) 262-7700 ext 1128 • Fax (407) 262-7745 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Casselberry City Commission News <br /> <br /> <br />Casselberry, Fl., April 29, 2008 – Public Works, upcoming City Charter ballot questions and <br />transportation issues were items discussed, and acted upon, by the Casselberry City Commission <br />Monday night. <br /> <br />The Casselberry Police Department briefed the City Commission on the possibility of using red light <br />cameras in the City of Casselberry. Red light running is of vital concern, not just locally, but <br />nationwide. The cameras would allow the City, through the services of a private company, to <br />document red light running and issue citations to violators. Proposed laws with regard to red light <br />cameras are before the State Legislature. The City is studying the creation of its own ordinance. <br /> <br />In one other transportation related matter, City Commissioners, in a consensus poll, reaffirmed their <br />previous support of the proposed U.S. Highway 17-92 Flyover project at State Road 436. <br /> <br />Improving the quality of drinking water was another issue taken up by the City Commission. <br />Commissioners approved payment of $30,165 as part of an agreement with a consulting company for <br />advanced water treatment capabilities at the South Water Treatment Plant. This will improve water <br />quality as well as potable water production reliability in the event of an emergency. The overall cost of <br />improvements at the South Water Treatment Plant is about $1.3 million dollars, spread out over two <br />years. <br /> <br />And, finally, the process of presenting 15 proposed Charter amendments to City voters in August <br />gained momentum. The Charter questions passed on first reading Monday night. The second reading <br />th <br />of the ordinance is scheduled for the Commission’s May 12 meeting. After passage, the Charter <br />questions will be submitted to the Supervisor of Elections. The City-wide election is August 26, 2008. <br /> <br />For more information, news and events in the City of Casselberry, log on to <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> ### <br /> <br />
