TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson voters are deciding in November whether to keep the city’s eight red-light cameras.

Organizers submitted three times the number of necessary signatures for review last month, and election officials say enough are valid to put the issue on the ballot.

A similar effort by the group failed in 2013 over invalidated signatures. Tucson entered a two-year contract with Arizona company American Traffic Solutions that’s up for renewal next month.

Former state lawmaker John Kromko coordinated the effort, and he told the Arizona Daily Star that he’s worried the state will sign another long-term contract with the company.

KGUN-TV reports the city is negotiating the new contract to try and avoid penalties if voters reject the cameras.
