ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri community that was the first in the state to install red light cameras says it will keep issuing tickets to red-light runners caught on camera, but they don't have to pay the fine if they don't want to.

TheSt. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the Arnold City Council voted unanimously Thursday to not pursue tickets from the cameras. The decision comes after the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District ruled in December that Arnold's red-light camera law is unconstitutional.

City Administrator Bryan Richison says those who get tickets and come to court will get their ticket dismissed, while no warrants will be issued for those who just ignore the tickets. Those who pay the fines, however, won't get their money back.

   School board members won't be able to hire family members for supervisory positions in the Fox School District if they adopt a proposed anti-nepotism policy at tonight's board meeting.  

   The Jefferson County district has been struggling with the issue since the district hired Kelly Nash as food services director late last year.  Nash is a former McDonald's assistant manager with a high school diploma and no advanced certifications.  She's the daughter-in-law of Linda Nash, who was president of the school board at the time.

   The policy to be voted on tonight would prohibit board members from hiring relatives to supervisor positions, such as principals, assistant principals and department directors.
