(AP & WHAM News) - The controversy surrounding the State Thruway Authority’s proposed 45- percent toll increase for commercial trucks has been tabled for now.
Following the cancellation of their board meeting, Tuesday morning, the Thruway Authority issued a statement saying they would re-evaluate the toll increase...
“The proposed toll increase for trucks is a complex issue that requires more evaluation before it is presented to the Board to consider. The Thruway is looking at a number of options and doing extensive research and it will continue to do this due diligence work before another meeting is called and a recommendation made.”
Opponents of the toll are calling for a third part audit to evaluate the agency if it comes back proposing another toll increase.
The Thruway Authority has yet to schedule another meeting, stating that they are researching other options before their next meeting.
