The program sounded great on paper when Stow City Council started it this summer, said Mayor Karen Fritschel. CRC (Cost Recovery Corporation) promised that the plan would bring in about $95,000 a year to pay for police personnel and equipment, Fritschel said.
   But after the first few months, the city halted the program because the total collected - about $3,000 - fell far short of CRC's predictions and city officials learned that most of the money had been paid by the drivers themselves.

   … Fritschel said she feels misled by the company and will ask council in September to repeal the ordinance that created the program and refund money collected from drivers.
