CAMERON -- Cameron residents may soon be able to pay their court fines online.
At Cameron Town Council’s January meeting, Mayor David Summers said he would investigate possibly working with Court Solutions to allow fine payments online.
The Town Clerk is to contact the Town of St. Matthews to see if their use of Court Solutions is satisfactory. There will be no cost to the town to use the service.
Summers said that the town entrance signs were estimated to be in the $3,000 to $5,000 range. He said the town would attempt to get actual prices.
A draft for the town’s plans for downtown is in the works, and a draft is expected in April.
