A press release issued by the county said: "Conduent will no longer process payments and all mailings have stopped. Any Notice of Violation that has been issued by Conduent is null and void. The vendor is no longer answering calls to the number listed on the back of the Notices of Violation."

Manatee County noted that the closing of its red-light camera program has no affect on any red-light violation tickets issued by law enforcement.
