Drayton Valley Town Council has moved to adopt the Automated Traffic Enforcement Fund Allocation Policy, which sets the framework for revenue to be utilized for the benefit of the community.

 At Wednesday's meeting council adopted a measure to ensure funds raised from things like photo radar will be held in reserves and allocated to Town programs and initiatives.

The policy outlines how much of the money will be allocated, with up to 50% going to the Safe and Healthy Community Allocation, no less than 40% going to the Life-cycle Capital Replacement Plan, and up to 10% of the funds will go to the Participatory budget.

Mayor Glenn Mclean praised the decision, saying "The money from this fund can be accessed for projects that meet the goals of safe and health community initiatives."
