Clarksville renews police contract

Town enters interlocal agreement to fight bridge tolls



“I pretty much voted for it because if the tolls take place, it’s going to put a real hardship on our businesses along I-65,” said Town Council President Bob Polston.

Per the agreement, each of the three entities will deposit $10,000 in a tourism bureau fund, which will be disbursed by a board comprised of two members from each entity. Councilmen Paul Fetter and John Gilkey will represent Clarksville on the board. The funds will be disbursed when a majority of the six-member board approves expenditures. 

Litigation is a possible use of the funds, but could also be used to educate lawmakers on the affect of tolls on Indiana businesses along the I-65 corridor, Gilkey said. 

Jim Keith and Mike Kapfhammer will represent the tourism bureau on the board. The city of Jeffersonville has not yet ratified the interlocal agreement.
