The total cost of this program is anticipated to be just over $5 million over five years. This contract accounts for roughly $2.1 million of that cost for photo red light enforcement at the three intersections identified: 99W/Durham Road, 99W/Hall Boulevard and 99W/72nd. Additional Municipal Court staffing, Police Department staffing, other ongoing operational costs, and a court remodel make up the other costs. The program is anticipated to generate between $6.2 million and $7.8 million in citations revenue over that same period.
A detailed revenue and expense forecast summary of the program is attached for review. There are many variables that contribute to the number of citations issued and at what level they are paid. The forecast takes into account a range of potential photo red light citations that we may experience annually (approximate range of 13,000 to 16,500). After all business rules and thresholds have been set and the City has at least six (6) months of actual program experience, a better expense and revenue forecast can be established.
