SIOUX CITY (KTIV) -

A Woodbury County judge has continued a hearing on whether Sioux City can keep its red light and speed cameras up and operational.

The hearing was scheduled for Monday morning, but it's been continued to a later date.

It's an ongoing legal battle between the Iowa Department of Transportation and the city of Sioux City.

In March, the DOT deemed that the two red light cameras at Lewis Boulevard and Outer Drive, as well as the camera at Gordon Drive and Nebraska must come down. The DOT also ruled that the speed cameras on the interstate needed to be pulled.

Sioux City argues the cameras improve safety on the roads and it collects thousands of dollars in citations each year. The DOT argues the cameras create a hazard, making the roads less safe.

A judge granted an injunction in the case and the cameras have stayed up.

No date has been set for when the hearing will take place.
