Chief Rich McLaughlin presented the recommendation to award the contract Red Light Camera Automated Enforcement, as outlined in a memorandum dated March 22, 2018. In 2013 the City of Laurel executed a contract renewal with American Traffic Solutions, Inc. (ATS) for five (5) years. That contract expires on July 8, 2018. ATS currently has a contract with the City of Annapolis, Maryland, which was executed in 2015. This contract is available to the City of Laurel for the same terms and conditions for a period of five (5) years with a possible extension for another five (5) years. The current processing fee per citation is $45.00 which will be reduced to $29.50, due to newer technology. The contract has been reviewed by the City Solicitor. After discussion, the Council was in agreement to award the contract at the Mayor and City Council Meeting on Monday, April 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM.
