A southwest Ohio village in upheaval over its use of traffic cameras to catch speeders has rebuilt its council after the majority had resigned.

Two new Elmwood Place council members were sworn in Tuesday evening after being nominated and approved by the council. They joined two other council members added earlier after resignations left four of six seats vacant last month. Officials blamed the controversy over speed cameras.

The village of some 2,200 people has become a focal point for a debate common across the country about using traffic cameras. Thousands of people got ticketed, leading to a lawsuit and a court injunction to stop using cameras.

Norman Bullock says he came out of retirement at age 80 to rejoin council Tuesday because he loves the village.
