Another toll problem

Postby RBarnes » Thu Jan 06, 2005 12:02 pm

One thing came up while discussing the police budget that points to yet another area Merrimack gets the short end of the deal when it comes to tolls… we pay for tolls in our town taxes!

That’s right. The police while using under cover cars get stuck buying tokens and there is ZERO reimbursement from the state for this so it comes out of our pockets via taxes. While it’s not a lot (only a couple hundred bucks) this is just one more thing adding up to what you see every year when that tax bill arrives. And it’s one more little expenses that shouldn’t be. For our state reps who might be reading this, please use this as another perfect example of how the tolls are unfair to the people of Merrimack!

If the state continue to charge the people of Merrimack which looks like this is what will happen there could be an easy way around this with the new ezpass.

Get the ezpass for the undercover car and then have the state allow it to go without a charge.

May be a way to eliminate the toll for the undercover car.

As it is now you would think the state would already allow police free tokens for undercover cars.
