Final Photo Enforcement Public Forum Wednesday, May 27th

GURNEE, IL - May 24, 2009 - The last of three public forums pertaining to the Village's photo enforcement program will take place on Wednesday, May 27th, from 7:00 to 8:30 PM in the Gurnee Police Department Community Room, 100 N. O'Plaine Road. The public forums are one component of the Village’s public information campaign aimed at educating the public on
the goals of the program, how these systems work, and what constitutes a violation among other topics. The forum will include a brief presentation, followed by a question and answer period. Mayor Kristina Kovarik, along with members of the Gurnee Police Department, will be on
hand to answer questions and field concerns the public may have.

“The first two public forums were a great success. Our residents had great questions and voiced some valid concerns. I think everyone that attended walked away with a greater understanding and comfort level regarding the program and its goals,” said Mayor Kristina Kovarik.
She continued to say, “I encourage anyone with questions or concerns to take advantage of this opportunity by attending the final session.”

In an effort to make community roads safer and reduce serious traffic crashes by addressing red light running the Village of Gurnee is implementing a photo enforcement program. The program is anticipated to begin in late May/early June with a 30-day warning period, after which
time citations will be issued.

Anyone having questions may contact the Gurnee Police Department’s photo enforcement office at 847-599-7171, or via email; photoenforcement@police.gurnee.il.us. In addition, residents can
visit www.gurnee.il.us to review more information about the program.
