Radnor Township commissioners will no longer charge out-of-town motorists involved in traffic accidents for police services, but they stopped short of offering to give back the money they've collected so far.

Board of Commissioners president Hank Mahoney last night proposed repealing an ordinance authorizing Cost Recovery Corp. of Ohio to bill insurance companies for the time police spent investigating traffic accidents involving nonresidents.

All the commissioners said they supported ending the unpopular and controversial law. The ordinance was enacted in April to minimize an expected tax increase but brought nothing but bad publicity to the affluent Delaware County township.

The proposal to repeal the ordinance will be voted on at the board's Feb. 26 meeting. In the meantime, the law will no longer be enforced.
