Sioux City officials are cutting $4 million in traffic camera funding from the city's budget, under the assumption the state won't allow placement of two cameras along Interstate 29.
Only about $100,000 from the city's red-light cameras is in the proposed fiscal year 2015 budget released Tuesday.
The Iowa Transportation Commission recently approved new rules over who controls speed and red-light cameras on state-supervised highways and interstates. The regulations still need to go through a public hearing.
The city may need to raise property taxes to cover the loss. They may also increase fees, make funding cuts or implement layoffs. Mayor Bob Scott says the proposed tax hike is a worst-case scenario, and officials will try to come up with other options.
