City officials are unsure what to do after the Ross County Board of Elections refused to remove a ballot initiative that would ban Redflex photo enforcement in the city. “We have to make the decision if we want to take this to the (Ohio) Supreme Court,” said James Mann, assistant law director. “The question for us is, ‘Where do we go from here?’” Last month, the City of Chillicothe filed a protest to ask that an initiative ordinance to ban red light and speed photo enforcement in the city be removed from the Nov. 3 ballot.
