Mayor Richard Berry’s administration has asked the City Council to award a contract that would keep Albuquerque’s red-light cameras in operation for at least another year.
After a request for proposals, Berry recommended the selection of Redflex Traffic Systems Inc., which has been running the cameras already under a series of temporary agreements.
Rob Perry, Albuquerque’s chief administrative officer, said that with council approval, the city would enter into a one-year contract that contains options for up to four more years.
The basic operations of the system wouldn’t change, he said. The cameras would remain at 14 intersections, and fines would remain at $75.
The recommendation was introduced at Monday’s council meeting and referred to a committee.
