Did you hear the one about New Albany's tolling preparedness plan?

Neither did we.

Apocalypse WOW: Pat McLaughlin thinks toll evaders will stop to shop in New Albany. Jeff Gahan doesn't return calls. Welcome to tolling preparedness, New Albany-style.

It would help to ask your district council representative (and all three at-large representatives), "What are we doing to prepare for tolling?"

City Council

At-Large – David Aebersold
1202 Aebersold Drive

(812) 945-1839,

If the answer is, "the mayor's taking care of it behind closed doors," then perhaps you must also start thinking about a new councilman.

I know I am.

Sorry about that; I didn't see yesterday's notification. First and foremost would be two way streets to remove the one-way speedways through town and spread the traffic. If pass-throughout sense an easy way, they'll all try to use it. If there stands to be congestion, then we must use it to our benefit -- besides, two-way streets have numerous other benefits.
