Listen up Beaverton drivers, the red light cameras are here to stay.
The city council has approved a new deal that extends the contract, and allows them to add nearly two dozen more.
Beaverton has just worked out a five year agreement with the company that makes the camera mounted to traffic lights, and in photo radar vans. But the city says just because the contract allows for more cameras, doesn't mean they're going to get them.
Under the agreement, the city will pay the company $40 per citation, instead of a flat fee of nearly $400,000 a year.
Council members say the contract will save Beaverton about $42,000 a year.
