Default Arizona Town Accused Of Illegal Red Light Camera Meeting

Full article at http://www.thenewspaper.com/news/69/6948.asp

Complaint filed with the Arizona attorney general accuses Fountain Hills of working illegally behind the scenes to install red light cameras.

"A complaint filed Friday with Arizona attorney general Mark Brnovich accused the town of Fountain Hills of violating the state's open meeting law to advance the installation of red light cameras. Several of the town's council members, including the mayor, discussed what it might take to bring cameras into the town, according to records obtained under a freedom of information request. The complaint filed by Arizona Campaign for Liberty Director Shawn Dow cited a 2005 attorney general ruling that stated such contact was not permitted.

"Mayor Dickey -- knowing these cameras were going to cost this town millions in lawsuits -- is willing to break the law to sneak them in while everyone is on lockdown," Dow told TheNewspaper. "She is trying to use these cameras to cover her inept budgeting skills -- she lost the tax increase, so she is trying to punish us with unconstitutional cameras."

Under state law, members of a public body cannot conduct an email exchange involving a "quorum" of members regarding matters that might come before the council. Mayor Ginny Dickey, vice mayor Mike Scharnow, councilman Sherry Leckrone and councilman Dennis Brown emailed comments to one another on the subject in a series of separate emails. Four of the council's seven members constitute a quorum."
