I live in Bangor Township and am retired so these proposals of toll bridges don't affect me as much as when I was working. I used the bridges at least twice a day 5 days a week for 20 some years. Even at the unlimited rate--which I wouldn't qualify for because I live in Bangor--I would have a cost of more than $1800 a year. That would certainly be more than my share of a county-wide millage. I like hearing that Mr. Barcia is ready to help at the county level--I certainly would support a county wide millage--and the state money certainly looks appealing. Maybe we could only charge cars with out of county licenses and out of state licenses?? (That's a joke!) I believe that putting a toll on the Liberty Bridge or closing it entirely as some have proposed would kill the downtown district. Until the Uptown at Rivers Edge connects to the downtown we have two districts competing and all the money is going to the new one.
County wide millage or bond issue is what I support.
