According to the Times-Picayune, the vote to approve a 20-year extension of the Crescent City Connection tolls was upheld. The vote was upheld on Tuesday, Feb. 19 "following a partial recount Saturday of nearly 4,000 paper ballots in Orleans Parish."
Mike Teachworth, founder of Stop the Tolls and resident of Harvey, sued the city in order to prompt the recount of the votes. Despite the upholding of the vote, Teachworth said his organization is going to continue to "move forward with the trial" in order to "reverse this unfair tax on the West Bank," according to the Time-Picayune.
Judge William Morvant made his decision regarding the extension in open court Tuesday.
"Saturday's recount was conducted at the New Orleans City Council Chambers behind closed doors," according to the Times-Picayune.
