MUSCATINE, Iowa (AP) - The Muscatine City Council is considering whether to support the continued use of the city's five automated traffic cameras.

The Muscatine Journal reports the council will decide Thursday whether to sign a resolution in support of the cameras.

Use of such cameras has been contentious throughout Iowa, with supporters saying the cameras reduce crashes and opponents arguing they're largely a money-maker for local governments.

The Iowa Department of Transportation has proposed rules limiting use of the cameras on state highways.

City staff recommends the council support use of the cameras.

Finance Director Nancy Lueck says the cameras generated about $662,000 for the city during the 2012-2013 fiscal year. That's down from $783,000 in the previous year.
