Toll-free issue in Vermont court
By STEVE MANOR

Northern Clinton Bureau
ROUSES POINT - A new. tollfree Lake Champlain Bridge may
depend largely on Vermont state
Senator Thomas Crowley and his
Senate Transportation Committee.
That's what political observers
are spying in the Green Mountain
State, but their counterparts in the
Empire State are saying Crowley
supported the toll-free bridge proposal in the past and he's a man of
his word.
Vermont Gov. Richard Snelling
has put up to $2.5 million in bonding
for the new bridge in the state's
capital budget The bonding
however is contingent on New York
State kicking in its $2.5 million in
bonding.

Chamber of Commerce spokesman
Mark L. Bane said Friday he has
received assurances from New
York State Sen. Ronald Stafford (PPittsburgh) that New York is
ready to go.
Here's what Senator Stafford
said. We're on target. Well be
ready when they are. We've got no
problem/" Barie noted.
'Ron Stafford has done all of his
homework and if he says New York
State is ready to go; New York State
is ready to do." Barie added.
The local Chamber of Commerce
got involved with the new bridge

project when the board of directors,
nearly two years ago. voted to wage
a campaign to make the new
replacement bridge between
Rouses Point and Alburg, Vt.,
whose construction could start in
1985 and take two years to complete,
a toll-free bridge.
While the local chamber is at
work on this side of the lake, its
counterpart in Vermont — the Lake
Champlain Islands Chamber of
Commerce — has been at work on
the other side
The chambers are confident that
Snelling bonding proposal will make
it by the Vermont state House of*
Representatives without a hitch, but
it could get snagged in the Vermont
state Senate.
Once in the Senate, it will eventually end up in Sen. Crowley's
Transportation Committee — where
it could die or get a boost onto the
Senate floor
" L a k e Champlain I s l a n d s
Chamber of Commerce President
Doug Tudhope has written Senator
Crowley on behalf of his chamber.
He has asked for Crowley's support
of the governor's bonding proposal
for a toll-free bridge. Crowley has
not yet replied to Tudhope's letter,"
Barie said.
"From my perspective, all eyes
are on Senator Crowley. He can get
this through the Vermont Senate.
Last year, Senator Crowley not only
supported the idea of a toll-free
bridge but supported state financing
to do it. He challenged if Ron Stafford could do the same," Barie said.
'The answer is yes. Ron Stafford
and New York State are ready — the
rest is up to Tom Crowley. I'm confident Tom Crowley will do the job.
He's a good man and he can be
taken at his word," the chamber
spokesman added.
Here's one way the new estimated
$20-million bridge would be paid
for: the federal government will

Gas now cheaper in Rouses Point
By STEVE MANOR
Staff Writer
Northern Clinton Bureau
CHAMPLAIN - Gas prices are
seven to four cents a gallon cheaper
in Rouses Point than Champlain,
breaking a long-standing tradition.
Gas prices at Champlain gas stations had traditionally been lower,
but that has changed.
Some say the Champlain stations
are keeping their prices up to cash
in on the Canadian motorists who
are coming down to buy their gas in
the U.S. where it is cheaper.
Champlain stations are adjacent to
Route 87, the route most Canadian
motorists use when coming into the
US
The two gas stations surveyed in
Champlain showed their posted,
full-service gas prices (per gallon)
were pretty evenly matched.
edford s Mobil station (now independently owned and no longer
dealing in Exxon Gas) is selling
regular at $1,349 and unleaded at
$1,419. The station gives a fourcents-a gallon discount on all cash
purchases so that brings the price
down to $1,309 for regular and $1,379
on unleaded
Jarvis's Mobile station is selling
regular at $1,329 (two cents more
than Tedford's) and unleaded at
$1,379 (the same price as Tedfords).
The two gas stations in Rouses
Point showed their posted, fullservice gas prices (per gallon) were
six to seven cents per ^gallon
cheaper on unleaded and three to
four cents a gallon cheaper on
regular than the Champlain stations.
Racine's Mobil, the station with
the cheapest posted prices of all
four stations surveyed, listed
regular at $1,289 and unleaded at
$1 309
Gaine's Chevron, the station with
the next cheapest posted prices and
one cent per gallon higher than
Racine, listed regular at $1,279 and
unleaded at $1 319
comes up with the remaining 20 percent.
The commission, the chamber
says, is looking into the issuance of
up to $4.5 million in revenue bonds
to pay for its 20-percent share. This
bond debt, maintenance and bridge
operating expense would have to
come from toll revenues.
The alternative, which is what the
two chantbers wants, is:
Each state to contribute an equal
10-percent share of the bridge cost
rather than the bridge commission
coming up with the full 20 percent.
This would mean each state coming up with $2.5 million in bonding.
'Having each state come up with
the bonding is the most cost efficient
thing to do. The two states can bond
it cheaper than the bridge commission. That's a fact." Barie says.
One other thing that has to be
worked out isn maintenance of the
new bridge.
"The major thing is state funding
for the building of the new bridge.
The next step is getting each state to
maintain its own half/' Barie said.
'it can only be toll-free if the
s t a t e s a g r e e to t a k e o v e r
maintenance after it is built. The
truth of the matter is the two states

said.

that needs to be done, the bridge
commission has to go out and hire a
consulting engineer. The two states
already have these engineers on
their highway department payrolls.
When there's maintenance work to
be done, the bridge commission has
to call in contractors. The states
already have maintenance people
on the payroll/' he added.
