In addition to voting for a mayor and council on October 16th, St. Paul residents will also get to vote on whether the town will continue to use photo radar or not.
The issue of whether to keep the practice in place or not first arose during a council meeting on November 28th and then again this past Monday. It was eventually decided that the decision would be put in the hands of the people with a ballot.
A special ballot will be presented to voters alongside the ones for the municipal election. The only question on it will be “Do you support the continuation of the photo radar (Red Light/Stop Sign/Speed) enforcement program in the Town of St. Paul?” with either yes or no for the possible answers.
Residents will be able to vote on the ballot either at the Advance Poll at the Town Hall on October 5th or Election Day at at the Rec Centre. Remember that you’ll need photo ID and proof of residence in St. Paul to vote.
