Ferry tolls could come up at pair of meetings

“This thing can die. We are not required to do anything but hear this,” Potter said of the public hearing presentation by DOT. “We (TAC) don’t have to take any action.”

Potter said he would not initiate any ferry toll talk.

“To do nothing is enough,” he said. “That is my stand on it, unless the Department of Transportation and the General Assembly force the issue.”

Meanwhile, the Pamlico County Board of Commissioners is actively trying to get the attention of Gov. Pat McCrory on the issue.

On Monday, Commissioners Kenny Heath and Paul Delamar III, County Manager Tim Buck, along with ferry toll opponent Greg Piner, met with Ed Goodwin, the Eastern Region’s director to the governor.

Heath said it was to relay the county’s stand against ferry tolls to the Republican governor.

Heath, also a Republican, said he earlier contacted the governor’s office seeking a “face-to-face” meeting with McCrory and the Pamlico contingent.
