Police checking tinted windows


Neighborhood briefs

Staff/Wire reports

DEERFIELD TWP. - The township post of the Warren County Sheriff's Office is now checking vehicle windows to make sure they are not tinted too dark.

Lt. Ed Petrey, who is in charge of the post, said that the new policy is effective immediately. Under Ohio law, a violation is a minor misdemeanor carrying fines of up to $100.

The department will be using a recently purchased window tint meter to measure the window transparency and make sure the tinting is within legal limits.

Those wanting to ensure their window tints are within those limits can stop by the Deerfield Township post, 3378 Townsley Dr., weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

North College Hill holds town meeting

NORTH COLLEGE HILL - Residents are invited to a town meeting tonight at 7 at the senior center, 1586 Goodman Ave.

A Metropolitan Sewer District representative will be on hand to answer questions about sewer repairs that have torn up city streets since last fall and closed Goodman Avenue for more than a month, said Councilman Steve West.

Council committees will also present reports.

Information: 521-7413.

Left turns prohibited at Lakota East access

LIBERTY TWP. - Motorists who turn from westbound Bethany Road into Lakota East High School can now be ticketed for a traffic violation.

"No left turn" signs have been posted at Liberty Lane, giving Butler County Sheriff's deputies patrolling the road authority to write tickets, said Christine Matacic, trustees president and acting administrator.

Trustees voted this month to erect the signs after receiving complaints from Bethany Road residents about people driving over the concrete barrier that blocks left turns into the school access road.
