Red-light camera revenue earmarked for schools


Farragut’s red-light camera revenue will be used to fund community grants in fiscal year 2011 — largely for Knox County schools serving Farragut students and non-profit organizations that serve the Farragut community.

At a meeting in June, Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved the use of $156,000 in net revenue to be used for the grants.


The schools that benefit include all Farragut-named schools as well as Hardin Valley Academy.

Farragut has three intersections monitored by red-light cameras: at Concord Road and Kingston Pike, Campbell Station Road and Kingston Pike, and Smith Road and Kingston Pike.

A fourth camera is planned for the Grigsby Chapel Road and Parkside Drive, and will be installed after the Campbell Station Road widening project is completed.



For more information about the community grant program or the red light cameras, call 865-966-7057.
