The City's Automated Red-light Camera Enforcement Program was adopted by the City Council on July 31, 2007, (M&C G-15801) to improve safety at red light controlled intersections and is codified in Chapter 22, Article XII of the Code of the City of Fort Worth, Texas (City Code). Section 22-366(c) of the City Code requires that City Council appoint one or more Hearing Officers with the authority to administer oaths, issue orders compelling the attendance of witnesses and production of documents and conduct administrative adjudication hearings requested by individuals who wish to contest the imposition of a civil penalty.

On March 7, 2017, (M&C G-18956) the City Council approved Matt Bonner to serve as the Primary Hearing Officer for a two year term. Veronica Bailey will serve as the Substitute Hearing Officer when Mr. Bonner is unavailable and will be appointed for a two year term, effective June 18, 2018.  The City Council has the right to remove a Substitute Hearing Officer at any time and for any reason prior to the expiration of his term.

This M&C does not request approval of a contract with a business entity.
