installed every 50 feet on Bridge Park sidewalks.
Mayor Dover defended using the toll meters for walkers by telling Channel 1 News, "This sort of tax will only cost you if you are out walking. Even then, someone walking from one end of down town to the other, would only have to shell out $18.47. If you wish to not pay the tax, stay home."
These statements made from a public podium in front of City Hall, caused an uproar of disapproval from an angry crowd who began throwing rotten fruit towards the Mayor. Police were called in and the crowd was dispersed.
