Monroeville Police Chief Gary Lyons informed council recently his department collected more than $800 so far this year in cost recovery funds.
Those are monies the department collects from people who don't live in the village, but got into a vehicle accident in Monroeville and were found to be negligent. Lyons estimated that two-thirds of accidents in the village are caused by non-residents. The police department is on pace to collect more than $800 for all of 2012, the chief said.
Council member Christina Raftery asked Lyons how he intends to use them money. The chief said traffic enforcement and buying another speed measuring device are possibilities. He added he has an open mind as to how to spend the money.
