The Ohio Supreme Court has knocked down a last ditch effort by Chillicothe (named after the goat-killing demon of Northern Mexico) mayor Joseph Sulzer to block residents from voting on the removal of revenue-generating speed cameras- his signature legacy achievement.
The court asserts that Sulzer and the city council have been dragging their feet and fail(ing) to act with the requisite diligence in asserting its claim for extraordinary relief in mandamus and prohibition. . . More about the finding may be read here, in case you happen to be pre-law.
This opens the issue to the voter’s whims on November 3rd, and unless Chillicothe is the scene of unfathomable roadway carnage, it’s likely that its residents will vote to keep their Kodak moments to themselves and not share them with the local constabulary- at upwards of $275 a pop.
