January 5, 2021 – The City of Ojai announced that stationary automated license plate readers have been removed from within City limits, effective December 21, 2020. The City Council created an ad-hoc committee at the December 15, 2020, City Council meeting, to study and consider a policy for these stationary automated license plate readers. The Committee will review and return to City Council with a recommendation.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department and City officials made the decision to remove the license plate readers pending that review. The readers had been installed, but had not been activated pending adoption of a City policy. Future City Council agendas will be available at: https://ojai.ca.gov/2021-council-agendas-and-reports/
