“That would be a lot better bill,” he said. “That is a possibility, but if that doesn’t materialize, then we will write our bill and introduce it to eliminate the ones (tolls) on our two ferries.”

Sanderson said any public showing for the Monday hearing is worthwhile.

“Absolutely, it always makes a difference to these people up here when a group comes,” he said. “They have a legitimate purpose. It makes a huge difference when it is done the right way.”

Beaufort County is offering free bus transportation to the Monday hearing for the first 50 people who show up for a 1:30 p.m. Monday departure from Beaufort County Community College on U.S. 264 in Washington, N.C. The bus will return to Beaufort County that night.

The public hearing is at Wake Commons, 4011 Carya Drive, Room 100B, in Raleigh.

Following a DOT presentation, the hearing will be open for statements, questions and comments. Anyone wishing to speak should register at the sign-in table prior to the 7 p.m. start.

A second public hearing is slated for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the Ocracoke School Gymnasium on Schoolhouse Road in Ocracoke.
