Meetings begin today on CCC toll refunds

Renewing tolls on the Crescent City Connection got a resounding "no" from voters over the weekend.  Now officials have to deal with the issue of refunding toll tag account holders and other drivers.

A lot of commuters had money drawn from their toll tag accounts between January and mid-March when tolls were suspended on the bridge.  Rep. Pat Connick (R-Harvey) says they start work today to refund that money.

"We'll be meeting in Baton Rouge today to talk about that and get the mechanism up on the best way to get that done," Connick told WWL's Tommy Tucker.

Connick says toll tags accounts should be easy to track and refund the tag owners.

"If you had a credit card, it's going to be easy," he said, but for drivers without an account who paid cash for more than two months: "We'll have to see on that one."
