IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Organizers have hit another legal roadblock in their effort to keep Iowa City from installing traffic cameras.
City Attorney Eleanor Dilkes says the latest affidavit submitted by the organizers had the same problem as the last one they submitted: It read like a bid for a referendum rather than an initiative. As a referendum, it missed the deadline to require the City Council to reconsider its February vote approving the traffic cameras.
An initiative proposes a measure for the council to consider and wouldn't have the deadline.
Organizers Aleksey Gurtovoy and Martha Hampel told The Gazette that they disagree with Dilkes' conclusions and will continue their push for the ordinance to be repealed.
The cameras haven't been installed yet.
