ELMWOOD PLACE, Ohio (AP) — The mayor is stepping down in a Cincinnati-area village where a speeding ticket blitz and court rulings against it boosted the push for a statewide ban of traffic camera enforcement.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports Elmwood Place Mayor Stephanie Morgan is resigning effective Monday but didn't immediately return requests for further comment about what motivated her decision.
Some residents in the village of 2,200 people had called for Morgan to step down last year amid debate about the traffic camera program.
A judge has banned the village from using the cameras to catch speeding drivers. The village has appealed that ruling and lost its bid to stop the judge from enforcing the ban in the meantime.
The village's vice mayor, Robert Schmid, will finish Morgan's term through 2015.
