Council Members Want CCC Toll Vote Canceled

Wednesday Jefferson Parish council members Elton Lagasse and Chris Roberts plan to ask the rest of the council to request the state cancel the May 4 election on the CCC tolls.

They say that’s the only way to find out if the state will pay for bridge maintenance.

Parish President John Young says he’s against the tolls but supports the special election.

Young says a court order set the election date and the people have a right to vote.

He says he’s always been against the tolls because the state is obligated to pay for bridge maintenance except for the lights.
